Deploying autonomous underwater vehicle to map seabed and oceanographic parameters

Prospective Students

As academic staff, we always welcome enquiries from students interested in marine physics and who wish to be involved in fieldwork. Due to the range of projects that we are constantly undertaking, assistance from keen and motivated people is always welcome! In particular, every year we supervise the dissertations of a number of undergraduate ocean science students, many of which acquire data from the field or from numerical modelling.

Recently a second year BSc Ocean Science student, Prima Anugerhanti, joined us on the one-month long, NERC-funded cruise to the Malin shelf edge as part of the FASTNEt project. During the cruise she collected underway samples of chlorophyll to analyse for her dissertation that will investigate primary production at the shelf edge. Following this opportunity, Prima said, 

''This was an amazing opportunity to get first hand experience of cutting edge research at sea alongside leading oceanographers - definitely the most exciting opportunity I could ever have imagined being given when I enrolled on the course!"
