Marine Geography

Suited to students interested in the study of the physical, hydrographical and managerial issues relating to the ocean and its coastlines.


I work as a Coastal Process Scientist for the Channel Coastal Observatory in Southampton monitoring the coast as part of the Southeast Strategic Regional Coastal Monitoring Programme. We undertake topographic beach surveys and nearshore hydrographic surveys. The data are processed and used by a wide variety of stakeholders. I am responsible for planning, undertaking and analysing beach surveys within the East Solent area. The wide variety of modules I covered at Cardiff, as well as the use of different software and the practical fieldwork aspect, helped me to secure a job which I love.
