QUADRAT DTP: Depositional control on deep marine sediment facies and microplastic accumulation, and their influence on the benthic organisms

This multidisciplinary study aims to assess how different geological and oceanographic processes control the deposition of sediment and microplastics, and their control or influence on the benthic organisms living within deep marine sediments. Read more

Effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics

Because vegetation attenuates wave energy and traps sediments, and is naturally adaptive to climate change, there is increasing interest in its possible use for coastal protection purposes. Read more

Can extreme internal waves trigger turbidity currents and carbon transport in submarine canyons? (HALL_UENV22ARIES)

Primary Supervisor - Dr Rob Hall. Secondary Supervisor - Dr Mike Clare (National Oceanography Centre, Ocean BioGeosciences). Supervisory Team - Dr Furu Mienis (Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Department of Ocean Systems), Dr Dorothee Bakker (UEA, ENV). Read more

The transport of plastics and alien particles under waves

While substantial fundamental research has been conducted in recent decades on sediment transport under waves,, little is known about the behaviour of alien particles dispersed within a sand bed mobilised by waves. Read more

Impacts of environmental change on UK coastal ecology for nature based solutions

Project Rationale. Nature-based solutions to natural hazards and environmental change offer the potential to protect, sustainably manage and restore natural or modified ecosystems while providing multiple other benefits for health, the economy and society. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more

Resolving Antarctic meltwater events in Southern Ocean marine sediments and exploring their significance using climate models

Project Rationale. The principal aim of this project is to better understand the role of the Antarctic ice sheet in global sea level and rapid climate change by reconstructing Antarctic glacial discharge and modelling the impact of these freshwater fluxes on ocean circulation and climate.
