Coffee Break Science
To make its science more accessible and widely understood, PML
has developed Coffee Break Science; a series of short podcasts
about its science and how the application of its science
contributes to society.
The first podcast, "Sea, Satellites and CO2",
received funding from the Natural Environment Research Council
(NERC) and is available from www.coffee-break-science.info.
Drs Tim Smyth and James Fishwick talk about
the marine monitoring and the Western Channel Observatory,
including footage of the deployment of a new autonomous databuoy in
collaboration with the UK Met Office.
Dr Tom Vance, Research and Development Manager for PML
Applications Ltd, talks about his career pathway and the exciting
opportunities available in the field of marine science.
Dr Jamie Shutler of PML explains the OceanFlux Greenhouse Gases
project, a two year project funded by the European Space Agency.
The aim of the project is to improve the quantification of air-sea
exchanges of greenhouse gases.
A guide for school students is
available providing background
information to the video and
enabling students to perform
the experiment shown in the film.
