Congratulations to Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Research Group member Niamh Cullen who has been awarded an Estuarine and Coastal Science Association Scholarship. Figure 1. A) Location of the coastal cliff and shore platform at Ballard Bay, Co. Clare; B) Image taken at the northern end of the platform looking SSE.
The grant will be used to help with the cost of carrying out Terrestrial Laser Scanning of a coastal cliff and platform at Ballard Bay in Co. Clare (Figure 1). The survey will form part of Niamh’s PhD research examining the rates, styles and processes of rock breakdown at a coastal cliff and shore platform on the west coast of Ireland (Figure 1).
