Coastal Physical Oceanography

Graduate student opportunity for Fall 2019: An MS position is available to investigate circulation dynamics in Eastern Boundary Current System using a combination of satellite and in situ observations and numerical modeling. The work will build on our ongoing studies in the area (more information here).  Interested students should contact


We study mechanisms controlling the physical circulation in the coastal ocean, using a combination of in situ data, remote sensing observations and numerical modeling. Main research topics include cross-shelf transport mechanisms and implications for shelf dynamics, the oceanic fate of meltwater from ice sheets in high latitudes, circulation in Eastern Boundary Current Systems, and estuarine dynamics and shelf-estuary exchange.
