Oceanographic research in my laboratory focuses on natural and anthropogenic influences on sedimentary dynamics in the coastal ocean. We conduct observational studies in a wide range of estuarine and marine environments to characterize flow, particle transport, and deposition, and how these processes influence the seafloor and coast. Our research explores basic questions concerning the flux and fate of land-derived geologic materials, while providing insight on dispersal of pollutants in coastal waters.
