    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
