The Seim Lab operates observing platforms to measure physical properties in the ocean, atmosphere or lakes and pursues analyses to improve understanding of the fluid dynamics of the sampled environment.  We employ a variety of autonomous observing technologies, including bottom moorings, meteorological buoys, underwater gliders and high-frequency radar, and also participate in shipboard (manned) sampling efforts.  On campus activities are largely devoted to analyses, which can be descriptive, empirical or testing simplified models against observations.  Please see ‘Research Projects’ for an introduction to ongoing research activities.
