SUSTAIN

Research Projects

Experimental studies of coastal ocean surface currents for application to oil spill transport prediction and response (CARTHE); radar remote sensing of oceanographic processes from satellites in collaboration with CSTARS (CSTARS‎ )and from coastal radars in collaboration with MPO faculty (http://iwave.rsmas.miami.edu); shelf and inlet dynamics ( RIVET 2) ; wave-current interactions; laboratory studies of air-sea interactions  in extreme winds, wave dynamics, turbulence and coastal structure design in the ASIST facility (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSJXbhsIGpA) . This fundamental laboratory work will be expanded in the SUSTAIN  facility which is scheduled for completion in February 2014.
