research interests include bio-optical oceanography, physical-biological
interactions, coastal processes, and coastal ocean observing systems. He has
been involved in studying the dynamics of physical and biological interactions
in a variety of environments throughout the world. Recently, he has focused on
the physical and biological processes in marginal seas including research in
the Adriatic Sea, Japan/East Sea, the Philippine Seas, and now the Red Sea.
While in southern California, he led efforts directed toward understanding the
effects of anthropogenic inputs from major urban areas on the biological and
chemical processes in the coastal ocean through a combination of ocean
observations, remote sensing and numerical modeling. He has also collaborated
on the observing and modeling the oceanographic processes contributing to
harmful algal blooms. Development of instrument systems and implementation of
ocean observing networks has been a major technological thrust of his efforts.
At KAUST he is extending these efforts to understand the physical and
biogeochemical processes within the Red Sea, the interaction of the open sea
with the coastal coral reef systems, and developing a basis for managing future
use of the Red Sea.
