Research Activities (Recent Highlights):
I develop and apply models to attempt to understand and explain fluid dynamics of the ocean, particularly phenomena in regional and coastal oceans. Observations and model results are analyzed to understand physics, and also to guide developments of methodologies for ocean hindcasts and forecasts.
My interests include
studying mesoscale eddies and currents both near the surface (upper 500 m) and
in the deep, ocean response to hurricanes, fluid dynamics of the shelves and
slopes, and near-coast & estuarine processes including dynamics of moving
land-sea boundaries – i.e. inundations. Presently I focus on processes
that occur in the Gulf of Mexico and the
The following links outline some basic concepts of ocean and regional ocean modeling.
