My long-term goal is to increase our understanding of the biological-biological, physical-biological and chemical-biological interactions that control the initiation, maintenance and dissipation of plankton patches. This goal can most readily be achieved by directly measuring processes thought to control plankton patch dynamics, experimentally testing their importance, incorporating those processes into conceptual plankton dynamics models, and then testing the models in the ocean.
