Since 2005 Gianmaria Sannino is staff scientist at the ENEA. Currently he is
working for the Energy and Environment Modeling Technical Unit of ENEA. He
has a background in physical oceanography (Degree, Univ. Parthenope of
Naples) and marine science (PhD, Univ. Federico II of Naples). His main
activities are related to ocean and climate modeling, and more recently wave
and tidal potential assessment in the ocean energy context. He was involved
in many European and National projects on climate change (PERSEUS, STask
leader), oceanography (RITMARE, Action Leader), and ocean energy (MiSE-
Ocean Energy, PI). He published more than 30 papers, book chapters, and
Protheus Group (2009), An atmosphere-ocean regional climate model for the
Mediterranean area: assessment of a present climate simulation. Climate
Dynamics, DOI 10.1007/s00382-009-0691-8
