Over the past year, BOSCORF has been helping PhD student, Hannah Muir, to split, image and process sediment cores from the Isle of Man.Hannah Muir is a PhD student at Swansea University, based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS). Her PhD research project is part of The Manx Blue Carbon Project, which aims to quantify how much carbon is stored and accumulated within the Isle of Man’s territorial sea to inform decisions that could maximise natural carbon storage around the Island.
