—As compared to conventional methods of ocean surface currents measurement, spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) offers cloud-penetrating ocean current observation capability at high spatial resolution. While some studies have shown the potential of SAR for studying ocean surface currents through feature tracking, they have only analyzed a few images(More)

2011 American Geophysical Union Ocean Sciences Early Career Award, in recognition of " fundamental contributions to understanding the oceanic general circulation, the dynamical nature of the eddy-filled oceanic mixed layer, and their connection to climate modeling. "
Phytoplankton blooms are geochemically and ecologically important, but current understanding of the causes of phytoplankton blooms provides little power to predict the timing, extent, and distribution of blooms. In this thesis, I discuss the implications of light limitation for phytoplankton bloom patchiness and community structure by modeling phytoplankton(More)
