Show Notes

In this episode, our former CEO Steve Hall speaks to Leigh Storey from the NOC.

Leigh is an ex-RN submariner now Associate Director of National Marine Facilities at the UK's National Oceanography Centre in Southampton. Leigh is heading up a new programme about net zero carbon oceanographic research capability and talks about the challenges of developing new ways of undertaking research at & under the sea with the lowest possible carbon footprint. This includes new sensors and autonomous systems but also looks at how the research ship fleet can be re-fitted with novel propulsion technology, and eventually be replaced by new ships that are as close to net zero carbon as is technically possible.
