How a Passion for Weather Turned Sonya Legg into an “Accidental Oceanographer”

Wednesday, Mar 24, 2021

AOS Faculty Member Sonya Legg is a physical oceanographer working in the Ocean and Cryosphere Division at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) through CIMES. Her research focuses on small-scale mixing processes in the ocean and their role in climate. Together with her NOAA colleagues, she is developing better representations of ocean mixing for climate models. Sonya’s research largely involves computer simulations, but she has also been lucky enough to join colleagues conducting ocean field work on a couple of occasions.
