John employs swath sonar mapping and high-resolution reflectivity imaging to investigate morphology of the seafloor, its pattern of acoustic reflectivity, and shallow stratigraphy. His research interests are focused on sedimentary processes and structures in coastal and continental shelf settings, with recent efforts dedicated to understanding the impacts of hurricanes, tsunamis, and glaciers on the near-shore sedimentary processes.
