Carl Wunsch

Carl Wunsch

Visiting Professor of Physical Oceanography and Climate

Professor Wunch's area of expertise is physical oceanography and its relation to climate. His work is generally in the area relating global scale observations to theoretical and modeling ideas. Large scale state estimation and inverse methods are used to determine the ocean circulation and its properties and variability on time scales of millennia to hours.
