- Focuses on understanding how waves and currents shape the beach and seabed.
- Utilizes underwater robots to explore the sea and examine what lies on the ocean floor. Exploration sites include shipwrecks.
- Trembanis develops new autonomous underwater robot technologies and data visualization techniques.
- Expeditions include dives off the island of Bonaire (in the Southern Caribbean), Black Sea, Delaware Bay and Tasman Bay, New Zealand.
- Can discuss beach nourishment, sediment transport and scour (erosion) and seafloor mapping.
