Capturing small scale features in observations and models, and their impact
Kelvin Richards is a member of the International Pacific Research Center and Professor in the Department of Oceanography. He combines observations, theory and numerical modeling to study processes in the ocean. His research interests currently include processes leading to mixing, the ocean response to the Madden Julian Oscillation, the impact of ocean mixing on ENSO, the impact of climate change on the submesoscale, ecosystem dynamics, and the dispersion characteristics of early humans.
