DTP student, Megan McGrory’s (Cohort 4) journal article about her research on the refractive index of polystyrene beads as a function of temperature was published, open access, this year in Environmental Pollution (2020). Megan demonstrated a new contact-less technique for determining the refractive index of solid aerosol particles as a function of wavelength and temperature… Read More ›
I have always been fascinated by how we can observe the changes on the Earth through our eyes in the sky – the many hundreds of satellites which daily orbit our Earth. So, I recently undertook the NERC Undergraduate Research Experience Placement (virtually!) at the Natural History Museum with supervisors Peter Grindrod and Joel Davis observing & measuring temporal changes in shrinking lakes around the world. This was done by using satellite image data from Landsat satellites. This collection of satellites has been surveying the Earth and collecting data since the 1970s!
