Marine technology, monitoring and risk
In this theme we develop, test and apply monitoring methods using wave gliders, other marine and aerial autonomous vehicles, moored buoys, platforms of opportunity and passive samplers. We seek to innovate in survey design and the analysis of data, including acoustic, remote sensing, citizen science and genomic data, to assess human pressures, state of the environment and risks from disease and invasive species. We are working to develop cost-effective integrated monitoring and reporting programmes based on new technologies and open-source modelling and assessment tools and open data. We will develop methods to target monitoring and management based on risk.
