Include the hydrodynamics of coastal areas and currents along continental margins and interdisciplinary ecosystem studies of coastal upwelling regimes. Research projects have included studies of the Slope Water off the northeastern United States, circulation and water mass formation in the Gulf of Maine, measurement of the Brazil Current between 24° and 30° S, multiple studies of the California Current, Undercurrent and coastal upwelling systems. Investigative techniques have emphasized combining traditional in situ data and new in situ measuring techniques with satellite and shore--based remotely sensed data. Involvement has been in both primarily physical oceanography programs and multidisciplinary programs.
