Garlmer Personnel Biographies


Blanton, Jackson O.
Professor - Physical Oceanography - Skidaway Institute of Oceanography
Ph.D., 1968, Physical Oceanography, Oregon State

Research Interests:
Coastal circulation and dispersion, continental shelf dynamics with a focus on the physical oceanography of estuarine and shallow coastal waters and exchange processes between oceans and estuaries and the effect of these processes on larval transport.
