Understanding the ocean attracts people with many backgrounds and interests.  Weaving their insights together requires mathematical models. Our group works to understand the processes that affect the marine environment by a combination of mathematical and computational models that incorporate multiple physical, chemical and biological processes.  Scales of interest range from the mm scale at which molecular diffusion is important to the many kilometer scale over which current patterns dominate.  Each scale is important for ecological systems but is dominated by different physical and chemical phenomena.  We work to understand the processes that are  important in them.

The topics above and to the left lead to different aspects of our work; the collage of images to their right  represent different projects we have worked on.
