My research is focused on coastal physical oceanography. Some current projects include the examination of poleward propagating flows from the Southern California Bite to north of Pt. Conception as a response to a relaxation of upwelling-favorable winds. A major asset in this study, as well as others, is the use of autonomous underwater vehicles to collect profiles of the water column both nearshore (25 meter water depth) and offshore (100 meter water depth). Additionally, I study some possible mechanisms of regional variability of ocean pH within the SBC LTER study site.
