Our group has focused on developing and deploying these new robotic and numerical technologies to better understand the state of the ocean today and its trajectory into the future.
Oceans and Extreme Weather
Our group is focused on understanding the interactions between the ocean and atmosphere and its role in driving extreme weather events (hurricanes, typhoons, nor’easters).
Climate Change and Southern Ocean
Our group is focused on understanding the physical, chemical and biological dynamics in polar seas, which are experiencing significant change as these regions are exhibiting significant change associated with climate change.
Biological Dynamics in the Oceans
Our group is focused on understanding marine ecosystems, which are highly dynamic and can change on the time scale of days. This reflects the strong coupling between the biology to the physics and chemistry both which can change on the time scales of hours.
Oceanography of the Mid-Atlantic Bight
The Mid-Atlantic Bight is an extremely productive system bordering the most urbanized and densely populated region of the United States. Our group is focused on understanding the historical, current, and future interactions between Eastern seaboard societies and the ocean.
