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 castelao@uga.edu

 

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.
