From the shoreline to the deep ocean, tackling issues from pure ecology
and physiology to aquaculture, marine spatial planning and conservation.

Sedimentation analysis

Human induced and natural sedimentation can have disastrous consequences on marine ecosystems. Research within the CMBB looks at the impact of such sedimentation using gravimetric sedimentation analysis and laser granulometry. 

Although much of the previous CMBB research was terrestrial based, the CMBB has the expertise and facilities for marine-based studies. Previous research in this area has focused on oil-related disturbance to sediments and infauna.
