Episode 10: Investigating Seabed Stability in Western Scotland


​In this summer series of podcasts, we introduce you to the winners of our Teledyne Marine Academic Grant for 2020. This grant offers universities and institutions the opportunity to utilize several of our flagship products free of charge for up to a six-month period to support their research programs.

In this episode, we meet Christian Armstrong. Christian is a Ph.D. candidate and student researcher working with a team from the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). Christian and the team are investigating the physical stability of the seabed around the UK continental shelf in the extremely energetic tidal flows of western Scotland.

Due to the operational challenges posed by the area's hydrodynamics, few studies have been conducted there. However, these regions are now receiving research attention due to their value for renewable energy and the insights into turbulent flows that they can bring.

If you're interested in learning more about Christian's work or receiving updates on his team's research project this summer, follow him on Twitter.
