Abstract:

My long-term goal is to enhance our understanding of coastal oceanography by means of applying simple dynamical theories to high-quality observations obtained in the field. My primary area of expertise is physical oceanography, but I also enjoy collaborating with biological, chemical, acoustical, and optical oceanographers to work on interdisciplinary problems. I collaborate frequently with numerical modelers to improve their predictive capabilities of Navy-relevant parameters in the littoral zone. Objectives The objective of these two closely-related grants is to plan and execute a multi-national oceanographic field program in the East and South China Seas to investigate how the complex littoral environment i.e., its water column, boundary, sediment and sub-bottom structure and inhomogenities affects the ray paths, mode structure, propagation loss, and temporal and spatial both vertical and horizontal coherence for low-to-intermediate frequency 50-4000 Hz acoustic transmissions in shallow water.
