Research Interests

My research is focused on model and analysis of physical processes in estuaries and over continental shelves and slopes. My students and I have conducted extensive data-assimilation model studies of the coastal circulation in the Santa Barbara Channel and Santa Maria Basin (SBC/SMB), as part of a major collaborative research with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Princeton University. We investigated how the coastal surface flow patterns vary with seasons and between years (including the 1997-1998 El Nino). We also constructed a detailed flow statistics for oil spill risk analysis and search and rescue mission. Currently, we are working mostly on the east and Gulf coasts. We study the Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf/slope circulation and the Gulf Stream warm-core rings using a unique dataset of >10 year, bi-weekly ADCP survey between New York and Bermuda onboard a commercial cargo ship, the Oleander. We also try to quantify the estuarine plume behavior using full-year CODAR observations at the mouth of the Long Island/Block Island Sound. I am also working closely with many international partners, including the National Center for Ocean Research in Taiwan, and IMEDA in Spain.
