Polzin, Kurt Associate Scientist, Physical Oceanography


Observation and modeling of energy exchanges between oceanic currents, internal waves and turbulence. My work tries to identify connections and relationships between phenomena and combines the development of theoretical constructs with the development and use of oceanographic instrumentation. Favorite topics are observing, modeling and parameterizing 2- and 3-D turbulence, diapycnal mixing, isopycnal stirring and T-S variability.
