Biography

  • Dr. Tonbol is a physical oceanographer with extensive research experience in climate change, sea level rise, air temperature trends, meteorological and oceanographic data analysis. He serves as an Associate Professor of Meteorology & Physical Oceanography and Head of the Meteorology & Hydrographic Survey Program at the College of Maritime Transport & Technology (CMTT), Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT). As the Head of Maritime Meteorology & Hydrographic Survey Program, he is responsible for the management of the program, including academics, operations, finance, and fund-raising. He has obtained research funding from international and local institutions. He has directed and supervised more than 100 students’ graduation projects at CMTT. Dr. Tonbol is currently directing and supervising 4 Ph.D. students. Dr. Tonbol has also supervised the establishment of a number of facilities at CMTT including its physics lab, automatic weather observing system, hydrographic survey lab, and environmental lab.
    Dr. Tonbol has also supervised the establishment of the following facilities:
    1- Physics Lab for undergraduate students at CMTT,
    2- Automatic Weather Observing System (AWOS) for education & research purposes at CMTT,
    3- Hydrographic survey lab for education & research purposes at CMTT,
    4- Climate Change and Environmental Studies Lab at CMTT.
    In his current capacity, Dr. Tonbol also represents the AASTMT in the meetings of the Permanent Arab Committee on Meteorology & its Sub-committees in the League of Arab States (LAS) & in the meetings of the World Meteorology Organization (WMO). He has also reviewed manuscripts submitted for publication to peer-reviewed scientific journals in the “Journal of Operational Oceanography”, “Journal of Ocean & Coastal Management”, “Journal of Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development”, Environmental Engineering Research and “Journal of Shipping and Ocean Engineering”.
