NUIG is represented in the project by the Ryan Institute promoting interdisciplinary excellence in environmental, marine and energy research. Activities include both research in support of policy and research with industrial partners. A work focus is on benthic ecology. The group has developed and built sediment profile imaging (SPI) cameras and has an extensive array of benthic sampling tools including drop cameras and HAPS corers.
Main tasks in the project
- Field work component to compliment MBA mesocosm experiments (WP5)
- Acute toxicity tests and survey design for field work (WP7&8)
