Abstract:

I seek to understand the mechanisms of turbulence and mixing in shallow water sufficiently well to be able to specify useful parameterizations for coastal circulation models. I seek to understand the links between mixing rates, the circulation and productivity of the coastal ocean. I seek to develop the technology to make accurate Lagrangian measurement of ocean processes and the analysis techniques to use it.
