The primary area of research is air-sea interaction, including the topics of surface wave dynamics, air-sea fluxes, upper ocean turbulence, including Langmuir circulations, and the remote sensing of ocean surface phenomena using electromagnetic and acoustic techniques.
Oceans and Atmosphere
The study of the physical, dynamical, and chemical interactions between the oceans and the atmosphere on a variety of scales, as well as their effects on climate, weather, and ecology.
Potential graduate students interested in this topic may want to apply for the Climate, Ocean, and Atmosphere MS and PhD programs or the MAS Climate Science & Policy Program.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate.
CalCOFI is a long-term, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral ecosystem research program off the coast of California that holistically studies the physics, biogeochemistry, and biology of the marine environment to inform the sustainable management of marine resources in the context of climate change
