Maite deCastro received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in 1998. deCastro is a Professor at the University of Vigo, Vigo, Spain, since 1999. deCastro's research interests are physical oceanography, maritime climate, dynamics of estuaries, atmosphere-ocean interaction, and climate variability. deCastro's activities are study of hydrodynamics, waves, and transport phenomena in shallow water. This study is performed by analyzing field data sets obtained in situ and by developing numerical models. Other areas are development of a morphodynamic model; analysis of variability (interannual and interdecadal) of coastal and oceanic sea surface temperature (SST) using satellite data; analysis of water bodies around the Iberian Peninsula by salinity and temperature data obtained from SODA and ARGO buoys data sets. deCastro is Censor for international scientific journals such as Physics Letters A, Estuarine Coastal and Shelf Science, and Climate Research.
