Professor, Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy
He studies wave-current interactions, and shelf and estuary dynamics using primarily radar remote sensing techniques. Dr. Haus’ hurricane research involves studies of the air-sea coupling in very high winds. In particular using the Rosenstiel School’s Air-Sea Interaction Saltwater Tank (ASIST), to investigate the effects of wave breaking and spray on the air-sea interface. This work will be greatly expanded in the surge-structure atmosphere interaction facility (SUSTAIN) presently under construction on the RSMAS campus.
