15 PhD students and postdocs from across New Zealand came together to discuss estuarine science and share ideas, as they developed sampling plans for the national Tipping Points experiment.
Director Julie Hall gave the plenary address on 4 July at the Australian Marine Sciences Association conference in Darwin.
Experiments have begun investigating the effect of sedimentation from human activities on offshore seabed species.
Today (30 June) is the end of Prof David Schiel’s tenure as Programme Leader, but we are pleased he remains involved in several research projects.
In May, Betty (an ocean glider), spent 24 days travelling 610km through the Cook Strait’s turbulent waters continuously recording temperature, salinity, oxygen concentration, light, acoustic recordings, and more. This data is important for developing better models.
Meet Betty, an amazing piece of marine technology that gives us detailed information about the oceans that we couldn’t get any other way.
Tasman Bay/Te Tai-o-Aorere and Golden Bay/Mohua are our ‘case study area’, where we are testing the tools and knowledge for ecosystem-based management (EBM) that we are generating.
Over the next 2 weeks, 14 drifters will monitor how water circulates in Tasman Bay, providing insights into issues such as where river sediment and nutrient plumes end up.
