Book Chapter
Smyth, K., & Elliott, M. (2016). Effects of changing salinity on the ecology of the marine environment. In M. Solan, & N. Whiteley (Eds.), Stressors in the Marine Environment: Physiological and ecological responses; societal implications, 161-174. Oxford University Press. https://doi.org/10.1093/acprof%3Aoso/9780198718826.003.0009

Changing salinity is a master factor in the distribution of both marine and estuarine species and is limiting to freshwater organisms; hence salinity is fundamental in modifying aquatic ecosystem assemblage structure and functioning. The effects of c... Read More

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. doi: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... Read More

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. doi: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... Read More

Co-location of activities and designations: A means of solving or creating problems in marine spatial planning? (2013)
Journal Article

Worldwide demand for energy is growing and predicted to increase by up to three times by 2050. Renewable energy will play a vital role in meeting this demand whilst maintaining global climate change targets. Around the British Isles, development of w... Read More

Is ‘minimising the footprint’ an effective intervention to maximise the recovery of intertidal sediments from disturbance? Phase 1: Literature review (2013)
Report
Smyth, K., & Mazik, K. (2013). Is ‘minimising the footprint’ an effective intervention to maximise the recovery of intertidal sediments from disturbance? Phase 1: Literature review. England: Natural England

Intertidal sediment habitats and the communities they support can be subject to significant physical disturbance resulting from both natural processes and anthropogenic activities (e.g. intertidal fishing activities, construction work and recreationa... Read More
