What controls the exchange of waters between estuaries and the coastal ocean?
How do winds, waves, tides and river runoff affect these exchanges?
How do coastal and estuarine circulation affect the transport of sediments, oxygen, nutrients, fish and invertebrate larvae, pH, and pollutants?
How is climate change impacting the dynamics of coastal ecosystems.
As a student of Physical Oceanography who also studies Costal Oceanography I am interested in waves and how they interact with the coastline.
