Monica Mullins is a PhD researcher in the iCRAG Marine Geosciences spoke. She graduated with a BSc in Marine Science from National University of Ireland, Galway in 2016. Monica joined iCRAG under the supervision of Prof. Peter Croot (NUIG) and will be investigating the optical properties of natural (phytoplankton) and manmade (oil) slicks along the Irish coast, with focus on the particulate absorption, CDOM and FDOM components. Additionally, she will construct a spectral library of the oil products to develop and informed data analysis system for the identification of surface slicks using satellite data.
