Centre for Coastal and Ocean Science and Engineering (CCOSE) seminar series

We have an exciting array of international speakers visiting the University of Plymouth as part of the Centre for Coastal and Ocean Science and Engineering (CCOSE) seminar series.

The seminars are open to members of the marine physics (MPRG), coastal processes (CPRG) and coastal engineering (COAST) research groups within CCOSE. They are also open to PhD, masters and undergraduate students within the marine area. People outside these groups are welcome to attend if space permits.

Seminars normally last for approximately one hour, including time for questions.
