The Coastal Oceanography Group targets on the regional place-based research along the north coast zone of California, taking advantage of the unique ocean upwelling zone, as well as in relatable regions worldwide. With new as well as continued collaborations with the biologists and modellers, and with multiple funding for this research, the Coastal Oceanography Group has made a major impact on our understanding of coastal processes at both the basic physical oceanography.
Both physical and biological characteristics are involved in Coastal oceanography. Physical coastal oceanography research at BML focuses on ocean land runoff, upwelling, and the inter-relation between coastal firth and the ocean. Coastal oceanography at the land and sea interface is a unique slot in oceanology.
