Research interests

  • Controlled lab studies of the exchange of gases across the air-water interface using mass balance methods
  • Effects of surface active materials on gas exchange & the Schmidt number exponent
  • Gas exchange at hurricane wind speeds and the influence of bubbles on gas exchange
  • Mass spectroscopy, UV spectroscopy, FTIR spectroscopy
