I research how weather and climate contribute to variability and change in coastal and estuarine ecosystems. My recent research has focused on observed changes in tides in Chesapeake and Delaware Bays and how these changes are linked to sea-level rise. I’m also interested in how skillful predictions of climate at the seasonal scale can be translated into predictions about estuarine water quality and ecosystem health.
I recently published a paper on identifying the effects of sea-level rise on tides in Chesapeake and Delaware Bays in JGR: Oceans. This paper has received some coverage online (at Futurity and Phys.org). This paper was also the subject of my talk at the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting.
More recent publications are listed on my publications page.
