Ralston, David Associate Scientist, Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering


I'm interested in fluid mechanics and scalar transport in estuaries and the coastal ocean, including estuarine exchange, dispersion, and residence time, sediment transport, stratified turbulence, bathymetric effects, frontal processes, and physical-biological coupling. My approach typically mixes field observations and numerical modeling, taking advantage of the benefits and recognizing the limitations of each.
