Brink, Kenneth H.
MetadataShow full item record
Allan Robinson made important contributions to coastal oceanography in at least two major ways. First, in 1964, he introduced continental shelf waves to the nascent coastal oceanography community, and so initiated a very profitable line of research that remained active for two decades. Second, he had the drive and vision to conceive of, and then direct, the first global synthesis of coastal oceanography.
