Ocean remote sensing, radar oceanography, ocean satellite observations
My research interests lie in ocean remote sensing with a focus on air-sea interaction. My specific research in these areas involves radar oceanography including microwave altimetry, scatterometry, and synthetic aperture radar as well as remote measurement techniques and models for directional ocean wave spectra, air-sea momentum flux and gas transfer parameterizations, and wind-wave interactions. One focus has been data fusion of coincident ocean satellite observations to improve how satellites estimate parameters such as near-surface winds, sea level, and currents. Another ongoing research activity involves the study of oceanic carbon dioxide variability in coastal waters as well as the remote sensing of greenhouse gas air-sea fluxes using satellite ocean surface wind, temperature, and color measurements.
