Research Description:
My research interests are in the role of continental shelf areas in water mass formation and modification, the mechanisms by which coastal runoff influences regional ocean circulation and climate (especially in the North Pacific and Canadian Arctic), and the formation and behaviour of subsurface water masses in the open ocean and on the continental shelves. I was one of the principal investigators in INPOC a joint Canada/US/Russia project in the N. Pacific.
