Research Interests:

Dr. Maul's current research interests include quantifying the impact of climate and global change on society, establishing operational forecasts of coastal ocean circulation, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, developing an integrated global sea-level/weather network for climate studies and sustained economic development, designing the Intra-Americas Sea Tsunami Warning System, and satellite altimetry research. His most recent book, published by the American Geophysical Union in 1996, Small Islands: Marine Science and Sustainable Development, reports the deliberations of a United Nations conference on the role of ocean and climate change on the sustainable economic development of small island developing states. Selected areas of research include:

  • Dynamics of ocean surface currents from satellite altimetry and numerical circulation models
  • Quantifying climate and sea-level change from coastal tide gauge/weather stations
  • Tsunami and other natural hazards in the Intra-Americas Sea
  • Earth system science education
