Emily Shroyer

Associate Professor

Physical Oceanography & Atmosphere

College of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences

Oregon State University


My research is primarily focused on small-scale ocean dynamics, such as turbulent mixing, internal gravity waves, and upper ocean processes. I work with both in situ data and process-oriented modeling to explore questions regarding how circulation in the ocean influences other components of our climate system. I am particularly interested in air-sea and sea-ice interactions, and how ocean processes regulate heat transport between the ocean, atmosphere, and cryosphere.

I have several areas of ongoing research including internal wave dynamics, high-latitude coastal dynamics in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, air-sea interactions at low latitudes in the Bay of Bengal and South China Sea, ocean response to tropical cyclones, and ocean-glacier feedbacks in Greenland.
