Launching into Ocean Energy Research


4 April 2008

Current and former members of our environmental fluids group feature in the most recent Waves magazine highlighting ocean energy research. Feature articles highlight the work of current postgraduates Francois Flocard and Gareth Huxham, and former members Dong-Sheng Jeng, Yun Zheng and Tim Finnigan.

Waves Magazine is the publication from the Marine Coastal Community Network (MCCN http://www.mccn.org.au/home ).

The Marine Coastal Community Network (MCCN) helps to build community, industry and government support for marine and coastal biodiversity, conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. The MCCN is a not for profit network with a national focus.

The Marine Coastal Community Network works to: inform, engage and connect community interests, the three spheres of government and industry to facilitate positive outcomes for the conservation of marine & coastal biodiversity and ecological processes, and the ecologically sustainable use of Australia's marine and coastal environments.

One of the main topic of their last issue was blue-green energies (ocean energy) and it has includedan article introducing the research work being carried in our department (University of Sydney Launches into Ocean Energy Research, page 8).
