Marine Soundscapes - finding and communicating biological signals within acoustic data collected by autonomous vehicles

Project Rationale. Our oceans are increasingly noisy due to increasing anthropogenic activities, particularly shipping. This noisiness impacts marine mammals and some fish species who rely on sound to communicate, find prey, and steer clear of hazards and predators. Read more

Probabilistic assessment of exposure to coastal hazards at nuclear power station development sites in the UK

Project Rationale. Nuclear power remains essential to the UK’s energy security and is seen by government as a cost-competitive, low carbon component of the UK’s current and future energy mix, with new nuclear power stations currently under construction along the coast, and more planned to replace aging reactors.

Microplastics and carbon sequestration: identifying links and impacts

Project Rationale. The downward sinking flux of marine organic particles (e.g. as marine snow and faecal pellets) removes large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to the deep ocean where it is stored for centuries – a process known as the biological carbon pump (BCP). Read more

Submarine volcanism from satellite imagery

Academic supervisors. Susanna Ebmeier (University of Leeds), Isobel Yeo (National Oceanography Centre ), Ryan Lloyd (Geollect) and Tim Craig (University of Leeds). Read more

Linking penguins, seals and whales to layers, schools and swarms: using echosounding to explore common themes for predator-prey interaction in the watercolumn.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Deep-diving air-breathing predators such as king penguins and elephant seals face an almost daily challenge of finding prey at depth (including krill and fish that may live hundreds of metres deep). Read more
