View Mahdi Razaz's CV
Dr. Razaz’s research involve the combined use of field measurements, satellite remote sensing, and numerical simulations to study diverse problems associated with hydrodynamics and transport processes across a wide range of environments from rivers and estuaries to coastal waters and shelf seas. The emphasis of his research is on developing and deploying new classes of acoustic and optical sensors to perform measurements where currently available instrumentation is not adequate. He has applied the principles of physics and mathematics to diverse problems associated with the availability of freshwater, sediment transport processes, tide-driven circulation, boundary layer turbulence, mixing, and entrainment. His recent research employs novel optical and acoustic techniques to explore how bubble-induced upwelling, entrainment, and ambient turbulence and currents control the transport of hydrocarbons released from a natural seep in the Gulf of Mexico.
