In this episode, our former CEO Steve Hall speaks to Leigh Storey from the NOC. Leigh is an ex-RN submariner now Associate Director of National Marine Facilities at the UK's National Oceanography Centre in Southampton. Leigh is heading up a new programme about net zero carbon oceanographic research capability and talks about the challenges of developing new ways of undertaking research at & under the sea with the lowest possible carbon footprint. This includes new sensors and autonomous systems but also looks at how the research ship fleet can be re-fitted with novel propulsion technology, and eventually be replaced by new ships that are as close to net zero carbon as is technically possible. www.noc.ac.uk/projectsFind out more about SUT at www.sut.org, contact us via info@sut.orgFor more information on how to sponsor an upcoming podcast episode contact info@sut.org Thanks to Emily Boddy for podcast artwork and composing and performing the theme music. Support the show (https://www.justgiving.com/soc-underwatertech)Support the show (https://www.justgiving.com/soc-underwatertech)
