Research interests

Specialisms: Ocean modelling, climate, air-sea interaction

(i) Large scale ocean modelling with interests in heat fluxes and heat content change.
(ii) Application of ARGO data sets to determine ocean heat content change.
(iii) Links of above with air-sea interaction from seasonal to decadal change.
(iv) Storm surges and tidal interaction in coastal seas and relationship to climate change.
