Our research program focuses on identifying and quantifying sediment erosion, transport, and deposition processes on the continental shelf through state-of-the-art observational techniques in both fine grained and sandy environments. In sandy environments our goal is to understand the detailed interactions and feedbacks between hydrodynamics, bedforms, and the resulting sand transport. In fine-grained environments we have been investigating the role fluid mud flows as a depositional mechanism in areas with high deposition rates.
