Renewables-to-reefs? – Decommissioning options for the offshore wind power industry (2014)
Journal Article
Smyth, K., Christie, N., Burdon, D., Atkins, J. P., Barnes, R., & Elliott, M. (2015). Renewables-to-reefs? – Decommissioning options for the offshore wind power industry. Marine pollution bulletin, 90(1-2), 247-258. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2014.10.045

The offshore wind power industry is relatively new but increasing globally, hence it is important that the whole life-cycle is managed. The construction–operation–decommissioning cycle is likely to take 20– 30 years and whilst decommissioning may not...

Valuing conservation benefits of an offshore marine protected area (2014)
Journal Article
Börger, T., Hattam, C., Burdon, D., Atkins, J. P., & Austen, M. C. (2014). Valuing conservation benefits of an offshore marine protected area. Ecological economics : the journal of the International Society for Ecological Economics, 108, 229-241 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolecon.2014.10.006

Increasing anthropogenic pressure in the offshore marine environment highlights the need for improved management and conservation of offshore ecosystems. This study scrutinises the applicability of a discrete choice experiment to value the expected b... Read More about Valuing conservation benefits of an offshore marine protected area.

Mass mortalities in bivalve populations: A review of the edible cockle Cerastoderma edule (L.) (2014)
Journal Article
Burdon, D., Callaway, R., Elliott, M., Smith, T., & Wither, A. (2014). Mass mortalities in bivalve populations: A review of the edible cockle Cerastoderma edule (L.). Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 150(Part B), 271-280. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2014.04.011

Mass mortalities in bivalve populations have long been of particular concern, especially when the species supports a commercial fishery or is of conservation interest. Here we consider the evidence of mass mortalities of the edible cockle, Cerastoder... Read More about Mass mortalities in bivalve populations: A review of the edible cockle Cerastoderma edule (L.).
