Robyn Tuerena - Education and Outreach Portfolio (2023-present)
Robyn Tuerena is a lecturer in marine biogeochemistry. Her research investigates how marine carbon and nutrient cycles are changing in the context of climate change. She trained as a geochemist using stable isotope measurements to investigate the cycling of nutrients and carbon in the open ocean. She continues to explore marine biogeochemical cycles on local to basin scales using stable isotope, stoichiometric and biomarker techniques and linking this information to ocean physics, primary production and food web ecology. Recently her work has expanded to use autonomous instruments such as Argo floats and biogeochemical sensors to explore ocean processes such as biological drawdown and anthropogenic carbon uptake.
The oceans, the blue economy and implications for climate change event
The oceans, the blue economy and implications for climate change
Date: 29 November 2023, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Rupert Howes, Joanna Post, Dr John Siddorn, Dr Siva Thambisetty, Professor Elizabeth Robinson, Dr Darian McBain
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, Cheng Kin Ku Building, LSE Campus and online
Many conversations about sustainability and climate-change focus on activities on land – the green part of our planet. This misses a vital part of the puzzle, the role that our oceans play.
Ocean and Coastal Futures - Bursary
As part of our commitment to encouraging and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion, Ocean and Coastal Futures is launching its first Coastal Futures Bursary in partnership with Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. This opportunity is open for young people aged 18 to 30 years old, who are currently underrepresented in the marine and coastal sector and face financial barriers to attending. Individuals do not have to be working or studying in the sector currently but must reside in the UK.
CLASS Modelling Workshop 2024
The CLASS Programme is hosting a Modelling Workshop in early 2024. This is aimed at UK participants only. Event details and criteria to sign up are available here.
