Hayley Evers-King (Earth Observation Scientist)
Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML)
Marine Earth Observation Scientist at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, her research interests include Ocean optics and understanding the sensitivity in reflectance that can be attributed to various optically significant constituents. How phytoplankton community characteristics such as the particle size distribution, intracellular properties and functional types influence ocean colour. Development of novel algorithms for application to in situ and satellite ocean colour data, particularly in the coastal zone and using the emerging generation of ocean colour sensors. Extending the use of the ocean colour archive for new applications e.g. for the management of Harmful Algal Bloom, for coupling to physical and biogeochemical models and to understand how the light environment can impact ocean physics and ecosystems.
Role in the project: Scientist on WP 500.
