Current research topics

  • Wave-driven circulation over the inner continental shelf
  • Remote forcing and seasonal currents in the California Current System
  • Physical drivers of phytoplankton concentrations along the central California coast
  • Enhancement of upwelling and internal wave energy in submarine canyons
  • Nutrient and salt fluxes in managed, seasonally hypersaline estuaries (e.g. Moro Cojo Slough)
  • Use of new sensor technology to investigate fine scale temperature variability and biogeochemical processes
