Alfredo Aretxabaleta , PhD

Alfredo's (he/him/his),  research mainly focuses in processes controlling water level in coastal environments including tidal effects, storm events, and sea level rise. Another important focus is the investigation of the problems related to sediment transport, especially during storm events, that can affect the redistribution of sediment.


I have a B.S. degree in Marine Sciences (1998) from the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and a Ph.D. in Marine Sciences (Physical Oceanography) from UNC Chapel Hill (2005). I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Department of Marine Sciences at UNC Chapel Hill, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (AOPE), and at the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar - CSIC in Barcelona, Spain. I worked as a scientific programmer contractor at U.S. Geological Survey Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC) until 2016. Now, I am an oceanographer at the WHCMSC.
