I have several active grants. Two of these come from from the National Science Foundation. A current focus is on how shelves and estuaries communicate with each other, and what role wind plays in this exchange. This grant is in collaboration with colleagues at the University of New Hampshire and the University of Florida. A pending grant will help us to better understand how Lake Superior varies from year to year.
I've recently recieved funding through UMD's Office of the Vice President of Research and through the Great Lakes Observing System to place a set of moored obsrving platforms in Lake Superior. One of these is real time- you can find the data by clicking here.
Another recent source of funding is Minnesota SeaGrant, which has recently funded an effort to extend numerical modeling tools to classroom teaching. I am working on this project with my co-PIs Jessica Crouch and Mike Dinniman, both of Old Dominion University.
