Prof. Mark Inall

I am Professor of Physical Oceanography and Lead Scientist of the North Atlantic Glider Base; pioneering the use of Gliders in marine science. I lead the UK Ocean Shelf Exchange programme.

I have many years’ experience in measuring turbulence in oceanic and coastal systems and publish widely on measurements of turbulence made on the ocean margins and in shelf seas. In recent years I have established an ocean turbulence measurement facility at the Institute.

Research interests:

  • Internal wave generation by tidal flow over topography
  • Deep Sea (Wyville-Thomson Ridge)
  • Shelf Sea (Malin Shelf, Iberian Shelf)
  • Coastal (NW European and Arctic fjords)

Internal wave energy decay and associated vertical mixing in above environments
