Dr. Xue's research focuses on the development and application of numerical models
to problems in the coastal ocean and the Great Lakes. His modeling-based research
interests include estuarine and coastal ocean dynamics, observing system simulation
experiments for optimal data sampling strategies, water quality and NPZD modeling,
and ocean-atmosphere interaction and its impact on the climate change. Research projects
he is currently involved in include ocean-atmosphere coupling dynamics over Maritime
Continent and Persian Gulf, and the development of an integrated Water-Ice-Atmosphere-
Biological modeling system for the Great Lakes.
