Craig Stevens - personal www page

I am a physical oceanographer working at NIWA, a New Zealand Crown Research Institute and recently I have taken up a joint appointment at the University of Auckland - Physics Department.  My focus is on environmental fluid mechanics. A brief overview is here.   I mainly use observational techniques. This takes me to a variety of locations with a range of collaborators.  The work is mainly about turbulence, stratification and waves - and how entities react/behave/exist in such fluid environments.   I have a strong interest in promoting environmental physics to the public.   And I try and have interests outside work.  This www collects some of this and does not reflect the views of my employer.
