Research Emphasis

  • The dynamics of coastal circulation, with a particular interest in dynamics of circulation on seasonal and longer timescales.
  • Interactions of coastal and estuarine circulation in large estuaries.
  • Maintenance of alongshore variation in species composition, and alongshore variation in allele frequency, in the presence of alongshore currents.
  • Quantifying effect of alongshore currents on the relative fitness of species and alleles in species with planktonic lifestages.
  • The impact of coastal circulation on the transport of zooplankton and icthyoplankton.
