We are scientists and engineers, postdocs and students

studying the ocean's physical processes

from the coastal aquifer across the surf zone

to estuaries, inlets, and rivers

and from the continental shelf to the deep ocean


Scientists and engineers in the Coastal Ocean Fluid Dynamics Laboratory investigate hydrodynamics and morphodynamics, and air-sea and biological-physical interactions, from the coastal aquifer across the surf zone, estuaries, inlets, rivers, and the continental shelf to the deep ocean using theories, field and laboratory measurements, and numerical models. Individual research interests are shown under the staff listings.
