Tom is the established Chair in Physical Oceanography. He is an observational oceanographer with a strong research interest in turbulence and mixing in the marine environment. His work has involved the development of new technqiues for the measurement of aquatic turbulence, and the use of turbulence measurements to identify, unravel and quantify key physical processes which drive mixing in the ocean. His current research focuses on the impact of mixing by the tide and wind on melting Arctic sea ice and the processes determining the surface mixed layer depth in the ocean.
