Coastal Oceans & Tropical Cyclones

The heat budget of the coastal ocean mixed layer represents the final push before landfall of tropical storms. As the processes of downwelling frontss or ahead-of-eye cooling happen at the same timescales as the storms, the interaction is complicated and a rich area of study.

Optimal Sensor Deployment Planning

Using models to generate a methodology for better planning of automated vehicles will not only make our models have greater fitness, but save in money and effort in describing scientifically interesting phenomena.

Interaction of Langmuir circulation and Sub-mesoscale Eddies

The spread and dispersion by cell instability of mesoscale and sub-mesoscale frontal structures by Langmuir circulation offers an explanation for the anisotropic pathway to decoherence for eddies and the strengthening of frontal systems.
