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

Improving the representation of the ice shelf ocean cavity circulation in global ocean models (OP2209)

Global sea-level rise is one of the most severe impacts of climate change which threatens large coastal cities and ecosystems. Sea-level rise originates from several sources, including melting of glaciers and ice sheets. Read more

Autonomous technologies and the marine carbon cycle: Impacts of coastal processes on ocean acidification and blue carbon. NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship for 2022 Entry, PhD in Biosciences.

Project Background. Recent environmental and climate initiatives such as ‘habitat restoration’ and ‘Blue Carbon’ aim to increase local biodiversity, support carbon removal from the atmosphere, and alleviate the impacts of stressors such as ocean acidification and deoxygenation. Read more

Improving the utility of ocean colour satellites in marine systems science

Ocean colour satellites have revolutionised our capacity to characterise surface ocean ecosystems and biogeochemistry, allowing continuous global observation that would be impossible from any other platform. Read more

Examining the evolutionary loss of calcification in coccolithophores

Project Rationale. Coccolithophores are unicellular photosynthetic organisms that build intricate calcium carbonate plates, called coccoliths, with which they surround themselves (see image here. Read more

Effective monitoring of deep-sea fauna using towed cameras

Project Rationale. Responsible environmental monitoring is fundamental to understanding and protecting marine environments and the sustainable development of marine resources, such as deep-sea mining, offshore oil and gas, or renewables. Read more

Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change. Read more
