Research Interests

Environmental fluid dynamics includes the study of fluid flows in rivers, seas, oceans, and the atmosphere. Such flows influence the transport of heat, salt, and moisture to and from the Polar Regions and thus are important components of the Earth’s Climate System. My research focus on the physics of turbulent transport in fluid flows is based on laboratory experimentation. The difficulty (and expense) of obtaining atmospheric or oceanic field data often precludes unambiguous interpretation.  Therefore theoretical and laboratory investigations are necessary to further our understanding of atmospheric and oceanic physical processes. This is a prerequisite for developing better parameterizations in numerical models. My research can be classified into four broad areas—coastal oceanography, urban meteorology, industrial and experimental fluid mechanics, and theoretical fluid mechanics.
