Changes in sea level cause coastal flooding, loss of wetlands, and erosion of sandy beaches. Changes in ocean currents affect hurricane activity, rainfall patterns, and temperatures on land. We are scientists who answer basic questions about sea level and ocean circulation in a changing climate.
We study how and why sea level and ocean currents change across space and through time.
Our work is supported by federal government agencies and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Our findings are summarized in dozens of papers published in a variety of journals.
We are featured by a range of local and international media outlets.
