Centers, Labs, and Programs

The group focuses on observing and modeling coastal processes including beach evolution, cliff erosion, and nearshore waves.

A specialized team of oceanographers, engineers, and graduate students solving vexing problems in ocean physics and biology.  We develop, build, and deploy novel scientific instrumentation to observe the ocean in new ways.
