My primary research focus is to understand the physical properties and dynamics of the Fraser River plume, including its frontal mixing and propagation, upward entrainment, and the transport of freshwater.  This research project involves both in-situ sampling (CTD towyos, ADCP, ADV, Echo-sounding, T-chain, Lagrangian drifter tracks, drone surveys, and data from sensors onboard BC ferries) and remote sensing dataset (High-frequency radar, i.e., CODAR, and satellite remote sensing, e.g., Sentinel-2, Landsat, MODIS, VIIRS).
