Primary supervisor: Dr Jacqueline Christmas Secondary supervisor: Prof Mike Belmont Location: Streatham campus, Exeter Funding: 3.5 year studentship including UK/EU tuition fees plus a stipend equivalent to the RCUK rate (£14,296 for 2016/17) Project description: The safety of critical maritime operations and the power output of wave energy converters can both be improved by measuring and predicting the shape and motion of sea waves.  The aim of this project is extract information from monoscopic video footage of the sea’s surface that enable its shape and motion to be modelled.  The models will then be used to predict its future motion up to two minutes ahead. Making observations of the shapes of sea waves is difficult.  We have been working with wave profiling radar, which is relatively expensive and difficult to…
