SCOPAC £500

Bradbury’s Bursary 2016-17

Professor Andy BradburyIn honour of Professor Andrew Bradbury’s contribution to coastal engineering across the SCOPAC region, a £500 bursary is awarded annually to a student of the University of Southampton’s “Engineering in the Coastal Environment” Masters course.

In 2016 Lauren Burt was awarded the £500 Bradbury’s bursary as a contribution towards her masters thesis fieldwork.  

In summary, Lauren has been investigating the physical and geotechnical properties of the substrate in the lee of Hurst Spit, Hampshire.

The thesis proposal was original and well written, with direct application to future management of the site as well as wider relevance to other barrier beaches and spits across the SCOPAC region.  

Lauren writes, “It is anticipated that the bursary will be allocated between covering the costs of the geotechnical company who carried out some borehole drilling, and the sedimentary and geotechnical analysis of the sediment in the laboratory to a higher standard than could have been achieved without the Bradbury Bursary.”

Lauren’s masters research project will be added to the SCOPAC website once finalised.
