The second technical workshop on Best Practices for the Formulation of Localized Sea Level Rise/Coastal inundation ‘Extremes’ Scenarios in the Pacific Islands was held in November at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu. The key aims were to outline: (1) best practices and methodologies for the formulation of probabilistic estimates of extreme water levels under a… Read More How to define extreme sea level scenarios in the Pacific Islands?
In November the National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, hosted the annual Postgraduate Research in Marine and Earth Science Conference. This conference is primarily aimed at PhD and early-career researchers in a broad range of earth and marine disciplines, providing a platform to practice presentation skills and poster production. The event was a huge success… Read More Seb Pitman awarded best first year PhD presentation

Millie Watts My PhD studies “Submarine Mega-landslides and their relationship to climate change”. It will be looking into the palaeoclimate signals from an existing core from the Eirik drift to constrain the date of an anomalous turbidite-like layer from c. 8000 cal yr. BP and determine whether it is sourced from the Storegga Slide… Read More New PhD Cohort Geology and Geophysics Research Group
