Gene   Rankey

University of Kansas (United States)
[ ]

My research explores surface processes and seascapes, integrating field observations, remote sensing analysis, and numerical modeling.

Trained as a geoscientist, my focus has evolved to evaluate the impact of global change on Earth-surface processes in shallow marine and coastal tropical systems, including reefs and coastlines. These studies include addressing questions regarding possible future changes to atolls in response to ENSO, sea-level rise, or variations in wave climate. Examining study areas ranging from the Pacific (Kiribati, Tokelau, Tuvalu, French Polynesia, Cook Islands), to Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia, South China Sea), to the Caribbean (Bahamas, Yucatan, Mexico, Turks and Caicos), my perspective is global.

I welcome collaborative opportunities!
