Overview

  • My research interests lie in air-sea interactions with a focus on ocean remote sensing of wind waves and the air-sea exchange of momentum, heat, and mass including greenhouse gases. My specific research in these fields involves microwave oceanography including altimetry, scatterometry, radiometry, and synthetic aperture radar as well as in situ measurement techniques and instrumentation related to turbulent flux parameterization, gas transfer, and wind wave interaction at local, regional and global scales. Recent research focus is on salinity remote sensing as well as investigation of carbon dioxide air-sea flux and its remote sensing using satellite ocean surface topography, wind, temperature, and color measurements. This work includes developing observation platforms and sensors supporting measurements in the coastal zone.
