We study linear and nonlinear wave phenomena with a primary interest in energy redistribution across space-time. We currently focus on studying the Earth under its “blue” and “green” aspects. We model and observe large-scale coupling between the ocean and the various layers of the atmosphere. We investigate and measure water flows across scales in forests — from that inside an individual tree up to a whole forest — to help anticipate the sensitivity of their growth to environmental changes.
