The Marine Research Group (MRG) has a strong tradition in environmental monitoring of diverse marine habitats, spanning from tidally-energetic channels to coastal oceans. With a unique collection of engineers, biologists and physical oceanographers, the MRG conducts research into marine processes, including large-scale hydrodynamic modelling or detailed water column characterisation, with a focus on the interplay of physics and ecology.
DHI Modelling Software to couple hydrodynamics with ecological processes
Hydrophones to measure ambient noise underwater or device-related noise
ADCPs (Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers) to measure current speed, direction & turbulence
Benthic (seabed) surveys to assess species composition
Simulations to calculate the probability of collisions between a device and animals
Multibeam sonar (active acoustics) to observe animal interactions with a device
Seal counts and behavioural studies to assess population dynamics and individual variation
