Ocean Study by Satellite Rewarded

A Bangor scientist is to be honoured for his work on using satellites to study the ocean. David Bowers of the School of Ocean Sciences is to be given the Award of the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc). This award is granted for ‘services to remote sensing…through sustained and distinguished contribution to furthering science and applications which use remote sensing’.

Professor Bowers and his research group have been involved in advances in the remote sensing of ocean thermal fronts, algal blooms, salinity and suspended sediment patterns and used this information to learn more about how our seas work.


The award is made on an occasional basis and Prof. Bowers is the 9th recipient since 2000. The award will be presented at a dinner at the society’s annual conference in Southampton in September.
