Most past research (and some ongoing research) involves the collection and analysis of low-level atmospheric observations over the ocean, based on special field measurements from moored buoys and aircraft. Notable examples have involved documenting the effects of the terrain along the U.S. West Coast on landfalling storms during the winter.
As part of the Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) program, air-sea interactions are being studied in the western sub-tropical Pacific.
A majority of the current work is under the broad umbrella of the Fisheries-Oceanography Coordinated Investigation (FOCI). Here the focus has been on the variability in climate and atmospheric forcing of the Bering Sea, and topographical effects on coastal winds in Alaska. The results from this work are being applied to issues related to the marine ecosystems in Alaskan waters, with a special emphasis on the impacts of climate
