About Marta Ribó

Marta Ribó is a marine geologist Lecturer of Geosciences at the Auckland University of Technology. Her research is centred in understanding the seafloor geomorphology and sediment dynamics in shallow and deep waters, and assessing the impact on the seabed of human activities, including plastic pollution and anchor drag marks. Her research career started with the research of the bedforms geomorphology and the hydrodynamics involved in their formation and development in the Mediterranean Sea. After finishing her PhD in the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain), she conducted her first postdoc in Sydney (Australia), focusing on de study of sand deposits in the SE Australian continental margin. In February 2019 she moved to New Zealand, where she is currently completing her second postdoc on seabed geomorphology, sediment dynamics and anthropogenic impact. Her work involves using a wide range of methodologies spanning from seafloor mapping, seabed sampling and hydrodynamic monitoring; all conducted during scientific surveys on board of research vessels.

The Queen Charlotte Sound-Tōtaranui case study Plastics can enter the sea in many ways, including through sewage and wastewater systems, riverine inputs, aquaculture and fishing activities. Large plastic debris can break down into small pieces, micro-sized particles (< 5mm), which are not readily visible to the naked eye. Once in […]
