Individual-based model of juvenile eel movement parametrized with computational fluid dynamics-derived flow fields informs improved fish pass design (2020)
Journal Article
Padgett, T. E., Borman, D. J., Mould, D. C., Padgett, T., Thomas, R. E., Borman, D., & Mould, D. (2020). Individual-based model of juvenile eel movement parametrized with computational fluid dynamics-derived flow fields informs improved fish pass design. Royal Society Open Science, 7(1), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsos.191505

European eel populations have declined markedly in recent decades, caused in part by in-stream barriers, such as weirs and pumping stations, which disrupt the upstream migration of juvenile eels, or elvers, into rivers. Eel passes, narrow sloping cha...

Ecological enhancement techniques to improve habitat heterogeneity on coastal defence structures (2018)
Journal Article
Hall, A. E., Herbert, R. J., Britton, J. R., & Hull, S. L. (2018). Ecological enhancement techniques to improve habitat heterogeneity on coastal defence structures. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 210, 68-78. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2018.05.025

Sea level rise and higher storm frequency are increasing the need for the placement of hard coastal defences worldwide. The majority of these defences lack optimal habitats for intertidal species, resulting in low diversity and abundance. The constru...

Microplastics in the Southern Ocean (2018)
Digital Artefact
Waller, C., Griffiths, H. J., Waluda, C. M., Thorpe, S. E., Loaiza, I., Moreno, B., …Hughes, K. A. (2018). Microplastics in the Southern Ocean

The Southern Ocean has the lowest densities of floating macroplastic litter in the world. It was thought that the region was relatively free of microplastic contamination. However, recent studies and citizen science projects have reported microplasti... Read More about Microplastics in the Southern Ocean.
