Dr. Shay’s research interests include: upper ocean response
and coupled atmosphere-ocean interactions, coastal ocean
circulation processes, surface wave current interactions and
atmospheric and oceanic boundary layer interactions. These
phenomena are studies largely from experimental and empirical
perspectives using measurements from aircraft, satellite,
buoy and land based radar (i.e. Wellen Radar).
Dr. Shay served as the Co-Chief Editor for the AMS Journal
of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology-Oceans, and is currently
an associate editor. He is on the Editorial Board of
Elsevier’s Dynamics of Atmosphere and Ocean Journal and served
as a NOAA Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Science
Fellow from 2004–2010. Dr. Shay was elected
a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society in 2012.
