Voting is now open for the upcoming Mersey Maritime Industry Awards. All colleagues within the industry are welcome to take part and vote for who they believe should win.
Marlan’s Director of Research, Dr Cai Bird has been nominated for the ‘Rising Star’ award for his achievements within the coastal environment monitoring sector (see here). As a result of Cai’s work, we can now turn radar images into 3D maps of beach elevations and seabed depths. These are continuously updated as the radar scans, providing us with the story of beach movement through different seasons and weather conditions.
Over the past 7 years that Cai has been working with Marlan, his numerous publications and innovative software developments have enabled the industry to more deeply understand the ever-changing coastal dynamics which are vital for both our society and economy.
The University of Liverpool and LJMU have also been shortlisted for the ‘Environmental Impact’ award for their ongoing doctoral training program LCEI (Low Carbon Eco Innovatory). Marlan currently work with and fund 2 PhD students within the LCEI program, Sam Godfrey and Phil Knight, whose important research aims to further improve the coastal monitoring industry.

The Marlan team would like to once again wish all participants the very best of luck in the awards.
