Zhang, Weifeng Associate Scientist, Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering


My research focuses on physical and biological processes in coastal oceans, including interactions of coastal flow features with topography and with processes in estuaries and the open ocean. I combine numerical models with observational analysis to improve the understanding of coastal ocean systems and the effect of natural and anthropogenic forces on the coastal environments that are directly connected to the well-being of our society. My research interests cover a broad range of topics in oceanography, including: Coastal ocean circulation, Frontal dynamics, Internal wave dynamics, Polynya circulation, Gravity currents, Data assimilation, Model-based observing system design, Biophysical interactions.
