Bob Brewin surfing for science

Young Investigator Award for PML Scientist

 

We’re delighted to announce that Dr Bob Brewin has been awarded Remote Sensing Young Investigator 2018.

The surfing scientist has been recognised for his contributions to remote sensing and ocean research.

His work focuses on the use of satellite data for understanding marine biogeochemistry and on marine-based citizen science projects for measuring key environmental indicators such as water temperature and water quality. He has conducted research globally, in European seas, in the Atlantic Ocean, in the Red Sea and in the Indian Ocean, spanning a range of marine ecosystems from the coast to the open ocean.

One of Bob’s current projects looks to tap in to recreational activities in coastal waters – such as surfing and kayaking – to help enhance understanding of sea surface temperature and its role in environmental dynamics.
