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.
The UVic Ocean Physics Group and our colleagues at Institute of Ocean Sciences are actively looking for new graduate students. If you have a strong aptitude for physics and mathematics, and the desire to apply it to important environmental problems, please contact us with a current CV, unofficial transcript, and a short statement of interest.
