Dr. Dustin Carroll is a physical oceanographer who uses state-of-the-art numerical ocean models and observations to advance our understanding of how freshwater, ice, and biogeochemical systems interact with coastal and large-scale ocean circulation. He is also a research affiliate at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

 Research Interests: 
  • Global and regional numerical ocean modeling
  • Coastal and estuarine processes
  • Ocean-glacier interactions in Greenland and Antarctica
  • Ocean-atmosphere carbon exchange
  • Fate of riverine/blue carbon and its associated impact on ocean carbon sequestration
  • Modeling ocean dispersal
