This week's Scientist in Residence is Leanne Hughes

"I’m a Tall Ship enthusiast and a Geologist in the Seafloor, Coasts and Landscapes team at the British Geological Survey. My job involves collecting geological information about the rocks and glacial deposits beneath our feet and under the sea and modelling their distribution. This can mean going out into the field with a spade or using bathymetry of the sea bed or 3D computer technology to virtually fly through the landscape from the comfort of the office. I'm interested in the relationship between people and geology, in particular how infrastructure such as wind farms can be best sited for best stability and least seafloor environmental impact. On the Pelican I’m hoping to sample seabed sediment using a traditional lead line and link to the soft sediment maps of the areas."
