Prof. BURTON JONES Specialises bio-optical oceanography, physical-biological interactions, coastal processes, and coastal ocean observing systems. He is working as Professor in Department of Marine Science, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.
"Burton Jones is a Professor in the Red Sea Research Center. His research interests include bio-optical oceanography, physical-biological interactions, coastal processes, and coastal ocean observing systems. He has been involved in studying the dynamics of physical/bio-optical interactions in a variety of environments that include coastal California, the Arabian Sea, Japan/East Sea, the Adriatic Sea, and now the Red Sea. Recently, as part of the Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS) and research in harmful algal bloom monitoring, Dr. Jones has been involved in implementing a coastal observing system that includes fixed sites and autonomous vehicles. This includes participation in the development of an intelligent network of fixed and mobile nodes coupled with real-time ocean modeling capable of adaptive mapping and sampling strategies."
