Today is a day to celebrate. We collected more than 10,000 SET pin readings, 420 Instron measurements and biomass photos, took more than 1,800 structure for motion pictures and recorded roughly 15h of wave and drag data… and we thank … Continue reading
As the team at the wave flume is putting together the last remaining pieces of this awesome construction effort, the science team is preparing to converge on the flume facility in preparation of the first trial run… We want our … Continue reading
While the South-East of the UK has experienced the driest June on record and in the middle of a heat wave, the RESIST team in the UK has been working hard… We are carefully excavating cores from a muddy east … Continue reading
Yes, we are planning another amazing experiment, to see how strong and stable tidal flat sediments and marsh vegetation really are… watch this space!!
