PhD Studentship: Rapid characterisation and modelling of marine biofilm deformation for estimating biofouling frictional drag

Overview. Maritime transport emits around 940 million tonnes of CO2 annually. Ships are often fouled by marine biofilms, resulting in increased frictional drag and fuel penalties that can range from minor to very costly, and which contribute significantly to global greenhouse gas emissions.

What does the future hold for European shelf seas ecosystems?

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) content has been increasing from the industrial revolution onwards, predominantly due to the combustion of fossil fuel that had trapped the carbon deep underground and away from the atmosphere. Read more

EPSRC iCASE PhD Studentship: AI on the edge: Real-time sea level and wave field calculations on the Mayflower Autonomous Ship

Overview. This project involves the optimisation of the processing and analysis of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) data using artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to determine accurate measurements of the sea surface from the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS: . Read more

Exploring The Utility of Transcriptomics Data in Toxicology

One of the challenges for the future of agriculture is to sustainable increase food production, using only the same or ideally less land area, to provide the quality and quantity required to meet the needs of an increasingly affluent & growing human population and simultaneously mitigating climate change and protecting or regenerating biodiversity.

Offshore wind farms effects on ocean fronts and seabirds

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
The UK is a global leader in marine renewables, and offshore wind farms (OWFs) are predicted to expand rapidly in future. However, potential deleterious biodiversity impacts mean we must do more to quantify and mitigate such effects and guide policy decisions. Read more
