Welcome to USCLAB, the lab of Burt Jones at the University of Southern California (USC). We specialize in the coupling of physical and biological processes in the ocean. Our research breaks down into two major themes:
- The role of regions of strong natural forcings and couplings in the ocean
- Urbanized coastal regions, specifically the coupling of natural and anthropogenic processes and their effects on ocean dynamics
USCLAB takes an integrated observational approach that includes physical, chemical and bio-optical observations to study ocean processes. This integrated approach is accomplished by utilizing tools that range from in situ to satellite remote sensing observations.
