  • Variability of apparent and inherent optical properties.
  • Hyperspectral remote sensing of coastal marine communities.
  • Relationships between water optics and coral reef parameters.
  • Characterization of mesophotic coral reefs.
  • Ocean color algorithm development and validation.
  • Effects of Saharan dust aerosols on the marine environment and public health.
