About

Alexander G. Voronovich received master degree in physics and the Ph.D. degree in theoretical and mathematical physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, Russia, in 1972 and 1975, respectively, and the Dr. Sci. degree in theoretical and mathematical physics from the Acoustical Institute, Moscow, in 1988.
From 1975 to 1979, he was a Junior Research Scientist in the Acoustical Institute, Moscow. In 1980 he joined the P.P. Shirshow Institute of Oceanology, Moscow, as a Senior Research Scientist , and became a full Professor of Physics at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1991. From 1989 to 1993 he was a Head of the Laboratory of Acoustic Waves Propagation in the Ocean of the P.P. Shirshow Institute of Oceanology. In 1993 he moved to the US and since then is affiliated with the Earths Science Research Laboratory of the NOAA (former Environmental Technology Laboratory) in Boulder, CO; currently he occupies a position of the Oceanographer in this Lab.
His research interests include wave scattering from rough surfaces, ocean acoustics, geophysical hydrodynamics (surface and internal waves, in particular) and linear and nonlinear theory of wave propagation.
