John Harold Simpson

Professor Emeritus in Physical Oceanography, Bangor University

Research interests include the physical processes that control the environment in shelf seas and estuaries and their impact on biological and sediment processes in the water column. In particular; the interaction between buoyancy input and tidal stirring and the resulting tidal mixing fronts; and the effects of freshwater input to estuaries and shelf seas.
