Model Drifters in Juan de Fuca Canyon

Image: numerical simulation of water parcels crossing the continental shelf in the Juan de Fuca Canyon, made using ROMS+particulator+Narwhal+WorldWide Telescope at Microsoft Research Connections.

Goals of my work:

  1. To advance fundamental understanding of estuarine and coastal physical oceanography,
  2. To link patterns of circulation and mixing to biogeochemical processes, and
  3. To communicate what we learn to people in a way that brings them a closer connection to the waters they live near.
