Cash boost for Irish Sea study.
Working with experts from the Southampton Oceanography Centre teams of deep sea boffins based at University of Wales, Bangor, will be homing in on projects which could influence the "health" of the Irish Sea and other Continental Shelf seas.
The UK Natural Environmental Council has decided to back the work, which will partly look at the impact of climate change, with grants totalling pounds 565,000.
Professor John Simpson at the university's school of ocean sciences in Menai Bridge, said: "The results will be of use in the management of the Irish Sea and maintaining it in a good state of health .
The work on turbulence will be undertaken using techniques developed at Bangor by a specialist research team which includes one recently recruited from the USA.
Colleague, Professor Peter Williams, said: "This new study will provide more pieces in the jigsaw of understanding of how oceans like the Irish Sea work and in particular allow more confident predictions of the likely out comes of climate change."
