Coastal Marine Group (CMG)
Director: Prof Chris Battershill
The Coastal Marine Group carries out pure and applied multidisciplinary research in estuarine and coastal waters. Core group members reside in the Departments of Biological and Earth & Ocean Sciences within the Faculty of Science and Engineering but collaborate closely with associates in other disciplines across the University, nationally and internationally. Our research is focused on coastal processes with particular expertise in hydrographical surveys/habitat classification, coastal hydrogynamics and sediment transport (measurement and prediction) as well as seabed biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. Research is funded from a variety of sources including commercial companies, regional councils and Government agencies.
