We are currently seeking applications for two PhD projects that will build upon our current studies of offshore windfarms on marine mammal and seabird populations.

Funding for UK and EU students is in place for Project 1 (Further details here; closing date 21st April), and UK/EU students interested in Project 2 can apply for a MarCRF studentship (Further details here; closing date 28th April)

 

Opportunities for exceptionally qualified overseas students to undertake these projects could also become available through a parallel application for a…

The School of Biological Sciences has a long tradition of research projects relating to offshore energy developments. Early work included studies on the effects of the UK’s developing oil and gas industry on marine benthic communities and seabird populations. Recent research within the oil and gas sector has focused on the effects of seismic survey noise on marine mammals, and studies that have supported new developments in deep water habitats or which underpin future decommissioning plans. 

Over the last 10 years, however, there has been…

The sunburn, dehydration and UV damage from the stranding can be seen in our first photo taken on the 14th July…

Eynhallow 2016 We’ve just returned from the third of our annual trips to Eynhallow – and discovered that 2016 was the most successful breeding season in the fulmar study’s 66 year history. Although the colony size is only 50% of it’s peak in the 1980’s, chicks were present at over 65% of the occupied nests we’d recorded in May. We also recovered 32 GLS loggers from birds tagged in 2014 and 2015, and deployed another 56 loggers. This work forms part of the…
