Personal profile


My research encompass coastal ocean physical processes and their influence on climatic, biological, and geological processes in estuaries, the nearshore (beach) zone, and the continental shelf region. I use field measurements, remote sensing, and computer modelling as the tools of my research. I have supervised 69 postgraduate research students and 19 post-doctoral researchers. I have published over 491 articles which include 195 in peer-reviewed international journals.
