Active research projects:

The research focuses on the investigation of Structure and
Coherence of Flow through the Fair Isle Gap (FIG) measured
by High Frequency Radar (HFR).
Variability of tidal fluctuation in the FIG is investigated using
complementary methods and datasets, such as profiling current
meter measurements, numerical modelling (Pentland Firth and
Orkney Waters) and HFR observations. Harmonic analysis is
undertaken to investigate the tidal pattern in the area of
The assimilation of radial surface current observations from
HFR system is also studied and improved. The Open-boundary
Modal Analysis (OMA) is considered as an alternative method
to estimate the HFR total vectors from direct assimilation.
The novel combination of current meter measurement and HFR
observation is implemented in order to estimate the transport
through the FIG.
