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...

Behavioural effects of hypersaline exposure on the lobster Homarus gammarus (L) and the crab Cancer pagurus (L) (2014)
Journal Article
Smyth, K., Mazik, K., & Elliott, M. (2014). Behavioural effects of hypersaline exposure on the lobster Homarus gammarus (L) and the crab Cancer pagurus (L). Journal of experimental marine biology and ecology, 457, 208-214 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jembe.2014.04.016

There is scarce existing information in the literature regarding the responses of any marine species, especially commercially valuable decapod crustaceans, to hypersalinity. Hypersaline discharges due to solute mining and desalination are increasing...
