Socolofsky, Scott individual record
Professor
overview

My research is in the broad area of Environmental Fluid Mechanics, with emphasis on laboratory experiments and data analysis to elucidate mixing mechanisms by turbulence and coherent structures. Current research projects study turbulent mixing processes in three contexts: (1) multiphase plumes, (2) shallow tidal inlets, and (3) natural seeps.
