Scientific (and other) ship time

1966 - In student vacation, went for 23 days on one of the last British steam trawlers from Grimsby, fishing mostly for cod off Iceland. I studied the gut contents of cod, and presented a student report to my university.
1975-1983 - First as part of my postdoctoral fellowship, then as independent consultant, took part in very numerous scientific cruises (mostly 1 or 2 weeks) off the west and south coasts of Ireland, mainly with the Department of Oceanography, frequently as cruise leader (Senior Scientist). Research vessels included the Queen of Aran, the Corunna, and the Irish national Research Vessel, Lough Beltra.
1983 participated in a cruise with the British National Institute of Oceanography to the Porcupine Sea Bight (Irish Economic Zone) aboard the British Royal Research Ship Challenger as observer for the Irish Government and invited researcher, 2 weeks.
1988 - Cruise in North Sea as Senior Scientist aboard Research Ship Victor Hensen (Alfred-Wegener-Institut, Bremerhaven, Germany), 3 days.
1996 - Cruise in North Sea aboard Danish Research Ship Dana (Danish Institute for Fisheries Research, Hirtshals), 2.5 weeks.

2001 - 2003 Co-editor, then Editor in Chief, of the Journal of Plankton Research   

2002-2005 Within a European Project, collaborating with the Centre de Recherche sur l'Environnement et l'Aquaculture (CREMA - L'HOUMEAU - CNRS/IFREMER).

My role : Characterising the rheological properties of marine intertidal and benthic fluff (crème de vase) using an ichthyoviscometer, measuring its flow through the gills of juvenile sole, and modelling its effect on ventilation and respiration.

1998 -  2001Within the Agency ACRO, I collaborated with 8 other groups in a European ESPRIT 4 Project ALICE (Quantitative Flow Field Visualisation). The object has been to develop a software package use High Performance Computing & Networking to parametrise turbulence in a sophisticated and user-friendly way.

I co-ordinated the input of four Groups supplying data and algorithms from observational and computational experiments:-

Invited as visiting Senior Research Fellow to work on visualization of turbulence, feeding of zooplankton, adhesion and recognition in phytoplankton, and other, related topics.

                    Lectured to Ph.D. and M.Sc. students at the University of Copenhagen.

1985-present - I run the Agency for Consultation and Research in Oceanography (ACRO), Lavergne, F-19320 La Roche Canillac, France. This agency has two complementary aims:

               1) Editorial work, Linguistic and scientific pre-refereeing service mainly for clients in French Government research institutions and universities, helping them to translate, and both linguistically and culturally adapt their manuscripts for submission to international scientific journals in the English language;
2) Fundamental research in oceanography. Public money for research is thereby trapped within the oceanographic discipline and so funds research more than once. Partly simultaneously, and partly interspersed with this activity I have been funded directly for research as follows (items back to 1987)

1994, May Took part in a Swedish expedition (leader Dr E. Granéli, University of Lund) to Fano on the Italian Adriatic. The aim has been to investigate algal succession in relation to the problem of mucus production (mare sporco) in the Adriatic. Financed by the Swedish Government as a parallel contribution to the European Commission's programme MAR.

1993-95 Financed by the French National Programme on Toxic Algal Blooms to investigate the rôle of mucus in mechanisms of toxic action by phytoplankton at fish gills.

1988 (6 months) - Invited research follow the Alfred-Wegener-Institut for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany (contact person: Professor V. Smetacek), working on the rheology (deformation and flow properties) of seawater in relation to the phytoplankton content, as well as on the rheology of marine organic aggregates in relation to their microbial succession.

Teaching (in English) to Masters students at the University of Bremen on manipulation of marine organic aggregates, and measurement of their physical properties, as well as more general instruction on the pelagic food web.

1987 (4 months)  - On contract to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) Mediterranean Blue Programme, through the Research Centre for Biology and Medical Oceanography (CERBOM), Nice, set up computer programmes to give quick presentation of fish landings by country and species (using FAO data), and also to model future pollution loadings in the Mediterranean, as functions of different envisaged scenarios.

1983 to 1985 - University of Nice, Laboratory for Marine Biology and Ecology (head Professor R. Vaissière (retired)

Temporary lecturer (Assistant associé)

Teaching of seminars and practical classes at levels of the B.Sc., Masters (Specialisation in Biology of Organisms and Populations) and Secondary-School Teaching Diploma (Licence, Maîtrise, CAPES et Agrégation).

Personal research on the rheology of phytoplankton cultures and then on seawater at four times of year (Collaboration with Professor M. Rinaudo, CNRS Centre for Plant Macromolecules, Grenoble)

1981-1983 - With the help of the Department of Fisheries (Dublin), carried out a survey of eels in Ross Lake, County Galway, and then set up an eel fishery and export business.    

1979-1983 - Worked as free-lance oceanographic consultant for various clients. Some of this work led to reports authored by myself (see last item). Also worked on red tides at Sherkin Island Marine Station, Co. Cork 

1978-1981 - Regional Technical College Galway (Dr. Barbara Wild)
Part-time teaching of Biology up to the level of B.Sc. in Aquaculture.

(Limnology & Oceanography, 1994), implies that this relationship is in principle universal across all regimes of water movement.] [pdf]
