Abstract:

My long-term objectives are to develop and employ numerical techniques to enhance our physical understanding of the life-cycle of energetic oceanic internal waves as well as our ability to predict the spatial and temporal variability of the induced flow fields. This goal encompasses the generation, long-range propagation and ultimately, the decay of such waves, either by shoaling or through energy transfer to other waves or modes of motion.
