The relationship between physical dynamics in the sea and the character and productivity of the base of the oceanic food web. He uses in situ measurement techniques and autonomous vehicles to gather physical and biogeochemical observations of high spatial and temporal resolution. These data allow for quantitative assessment of budgets of physical dynamics (energy, heat, buoyancy fluxes, turbulent dissipation rates) and biogeochemically relevant processes (nutrient and carbon fluxes, transport and mixing).
