Nicholas OlsenGraduate Student
Nicholas wrote a M.S. thesis that examined long-term trends in Lake Michigan waves, analyzing historical buoy data and wave model output. His work showed that few statistically-defensible long-term trends can be found in Lake Michigan’s waves, and if anything waves and storms appear to have reduced in their intensity since 1980. Nicholas now works with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Vicksburg, MS.
