Area of Interest

Study of hydrodynamics and dispersion in coastal ocean, including bays, estuaries and nearshore. Dispersion problems related to environmental issues, e.g., water quality, population ecology, algal blooms, estuarine habitat. Hydrodynamic problems include stratified flow, surface wind forcing, flow-topography interactions (e.g., jets, wakes, boundary layers), and waves/tides/internal waves.
