Physical oceanography; ocean circulation
Department of Marine Science
I am primarily interested in process oriented studies. In my research I am using both analytical and numerical methods of investigations. Currently I am working on the following projects:
I. Physical processes controlling the water, heat, and salt exchange between
the Pacific and
II. Model skill assessment based on the comparison of observed and simulated data. The main question is to find relevant metrics for a model validation. Different numerical models are analyzed.
III. The interaction of wind waves and wind-driven currents in the near shore region of the Mississippi Bight during storms.
