Ocean Business, 9-11th April
Marlan are making final preparations for Ocean Business at the NOC, Southampton between 9-11th April 2019. Dr Cai Bird will also be speaking at the event on ‘enabling autonomous nearshore monitoring using shore-based remote sensing’.
Cai’s presentation will cover Marlan’s recent Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the NOC and the University of Liverpool which was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ grade (see January’s KTP news story here). The talk will discuss the techniques developed during the collaboration, how existing knowledge was transferred from the NOC to Marlan and how new IP was developed in collaboration. This merger of a world-leading research organisation and a dynamic SME has resulted in the development of Synoptic into a truly powerful tool for the coastal survey, science, engineering and management industries.
Cai will be presenting on 10th April, 10am in seminar room 104/13. The team would be delighted if you came to hear more.
Marlan are keen to play a long-term role in developing cutting edge methods of monitoring coastal areas using a suite of remote sensing technologies, radar, video cameras and satellites. If you’re planning to come to Ocean business and have an interest in coastal hydrography and hydrodynamics, then Marlan would love to talk to you at stand V18.

Preparations for Flood and Coast, 18-20th June
Marlan will also be exhibiting at Flood and Coast this year in Telford between 18-20th June and Cai will be presenting in the “Let’s Get Digital – data sources” session on 20th June at 11.15am. The presentation, “Autonomous, near real-time coastal monitoring with ground-based remote sensors. Coastal Big Data analytics; challenges and opportunities for the FCERM community” will showcase the work underway on the Fylde peninsula to monitor the coastal area around the new Rossall coastal defence scheme.
Flood and Coast brings together key members of the FCERM community to collaborate and address the challenges of risk, resilience and response in a climate that is rapidly changing. Find out more about the conference here.
