Dr. Marsden specializes in field studies in the arctic, focussing on polynyas and the implementation of acoustic Doppler current profilers. Currently Dr. Marsden is implementing a new field study of current profilers near Resolute, Nunavut, Canada. He has supervised students studying new signal processing techniques for underwater sound sources and improved remotely sensed temperature observations for Arctic waters and associated marginal ice zones.
