Melville Lab

The group, led by Ken Melville, is affiliated with the Marine Physical Laboratory and the Climate, Atmospheric Science and Physical Oceanography (CASPO) division of Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The primary area of research is air-sea interaction, including the topics of surface wave dynamics, air-sea fluxes, upper ocean turbulence, including Langmuir circulations, and the remote sensing of ocean surface phenomena using electromagnetic and acoustic techniques. Many of these processes and phenomena are influenced directly by surface wave breaking.
