Water waves, nearshore hydrodynamics, coastal processes.
Here's another picture, showing me putting dye into a rip current generated in the laboratory's Directional Wave Basin.
This study of rip current generation in the vicinity of sand bars is funded by ONR. This picture shows the Directional Wave
Basin with waves refracting on the rip currents through the sand bars. The black crosses on the bottom are measurement positions.
Finally, here's a picture from Waves 2001 with me, Robert G. Dean, with Leslie Ewing and Becky Edge in the background (K. Barnes photo).
