Current Research

  • Turbulence and mixing in the ocean
  • Small-scale ocean physics
  • Nonlinear internal waves
  • Abyssal mixing
  • Boundary mixing
  • Small-scale processes in the coastal ocean
  • Upper ocean dynamics
  • Bottom boundary layers
  • Developing the instrumentation necessary to get new and detailed observations of small-scale fluid processes
