Professor, Geography and Institute for Computational Earth System Science
Libe Washburn earned his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from the University of California, San Diego. His research interests include coastal circulation, mesoscale processes, air-sea interaction, and interdisciplinary oceanography. His current project, Observing the Surface: Circulation along the South-Central California Coast Using High Frequency Radar: Consequences for Larval and Pollutant Dispersal involves conducting experiments which combine observations from drifters and HF radars to assess the accuracy of current velocities derived from HF radar.
