World Tsunami Awareness day

Posted in: WIRC @ Bath

Dr Philippe Blondel, an Associate at the WIRC @ Bath, is featured in the recent International Business Times (IBT) news for the World Tsunami Awareness Day, 5th November 2016. He told IBT that "increased international efforts are necessary to map oceans. Indeed, as we map the seabed we discover more and more risky seismic areas as well as areas that have a potential of landslide. In theory, we know have completely mapped the ocean floor, but these maps are not completely accurate".

Dr Philippe Blondel's research interests include

  • marine acoustics
  • seabed and habitat mapping
  • ambient noise underwater
  • marine renewable energies
  • innovative imaging tool
