Dr Carol Cotterill
Marine and Coastal Geoscientist
Carol initially studied Oceanography with Geology at the National Oceanographic Centre, Southampton (NOCS). After 3 months working in Chile for Raleigh International investigating the response of a freshwater terminating glacier on the Patagonian Icecap to climate change, she returned to do a Marine Geophysics Ph.D at NOCS. During the 3 years of research she investigated the behaviour of an active fault system in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece, and the seismic response to growth of an active system.
After completing her Ph.D she went to work for BGS as a Coastal and Marine Geoscientist. The projects she works on are varied – ranging from habitat advisory work to managing the UK participation of the European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) ERA-net program.
Carol became involved with Cape Farewell in 2007, and is now actively involved in both the scientific research and educational aspects of the program.
'Climate change is affecting everyone on some level. I can see that graphs and figures won’t appeal to everyone, but we have to find a way of getting the message across. Cape Farewell is a superb channel, combining arts and science in a unique way'
