Dr Andrew Fischer's research focuses on understanding the interaction between physics and biology in the coastal ocean and estuaries. This work integrates observation from satellites, airborne sensors and in situ measurements from ships, autonomous underwater vehicles and moorings. By applying spatial and statistical approaches, this research focuses on understanding dynamic phenomena in rapidly changing coastal waters, in particular, the development of algal blooms and the transport and fate of land-based materials into the coastal ocean. In addition, his research also focuses on conservation decision making and policy for these coastal environments.
