But that's the logistics; what about the science? I have a students on a wide range of topics; geoengineering, sea level change, carbon capture and storage, GHG emissions from waste plastic, and the Gulf Stream. Cool! And when I had the first tutorial they all showed up. A good sign! So I'm looking forward to this. I hope they are too! I do think I managed to steer a few away from taking way too much on. I hope they all do well!
And then as well, the MSc students were allocated. Last year I had one. And I found out I had one again! On a project, again with our industrial partner! It will be cool as well. We will be looking into the effect of the drainage of a local copper mine on the estuarine fauna. Forams and mines combined; could it be better? Stay tuned for more!
