Welcome to the McSweeney lab website
We are a group of coastal physical oceanographers interested in the interconnected dynamics driving transport within and between coastal subregions, including the inner shelf, nearshore, and estuaries. Research topics we study include:
- dynamics of shoaling internal waves and their contribution to cross-shelf transport
- estuarine and coastal transport
- evolution of buoyant coastal plumes
- spatiotemporal variability of stratification in coastal subregions.
Our lab specializes in the collection of new observations locally and globally through mooring operations, shipboard surveys, and a growing glider program.
