For podcast 19 SUT CEO Steve Hall interviews Mick Cook about his long career in offshore site investigation, geotechnics and geophysics.
Mick talks through how he entered the sector in the 1980s, how the technology and techniques have evolved, and how particular incidents & individuals influenced and shaped how he learned to interpret and add value to the data that constantly-improving instrumentation, software and sensors provided him. He speaks about the work of the SUT Offshore Site Investigations Committee (OSIG) and of the help and support being a member of the Society for Underwater Technology has given him throughout his career. He heartily recommends that young people enter the field, there's plenty to do as the world moves forward with renewable energy, carbon capture & storage and other disciplines that will require knowledge about the sea floor.
