Research Interests

Our group collects and analyzes seagoing data, and create numerical experiments designed to help us understand small scale ocean flows, and their impacts on large scale flows. Important processes include waves, turbulence, fronts and eddies. These processes are what ultimately dissipate energy from the ocean circulation and mix momentum, heat, salt, and passive tracers.
