Centers, Labs, and Programs

A global network of robotic floats that measure the changing state of the ocean.

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

Provide water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of western North America.

Specializing in estuarine and coastal processes with an interest in interdisciplinary projects that address how physics impacts important biological and chemical processes in the coastal environment.

Much of the work from this lab involves inductive theoretical approaches to understanding nature from observational data.
