Degree Ph.D., M.I.T. - Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Joint Program
Research Activities My research interests are directed toward understanding the dynamics of the oc ean at scales from 100 km to 10,000 km, or equivalently from the deformation scale to the basin scale. Phenomena at these scales exhibit several different behavior s, from completely free evolution to directly forced evolution, and have a number of interesting characteristics. I have chosen to work on these types of oceanic phenomena because of a long-term research goal of understanding global climate . It is likely that the ocean is an important com0ponent in the determination of long-term climate tendencies. It is also likely that one of the primary ways in which the atmosphere and the ocean are coupled involves the storage and transp ort of heat by the ocean. The oceanic phenomena of deformation and larger scales participate importantly in both.
