Kudela Laboratory

Welcome to the Kudela lab group page at UC Santa Cruz. Our group is focused on the study of phytoplankton dynamics in the Eastern Pacific Ocean coastal region and finding new applications for remote sensing technology. In combination with other researchers at UCSC and partner institutions we utilize satellite based remote sensing imagery, in situ mooring data, and bio-optical shipboard instruments to model ocean ecosystem dynamics. We also use traditional oceanographic sampling methods to monitor water quality and phytoplankton population dynamics in Monterey Bay.
