Acerca de Marta Ribó

Marta Ribó is a marine geologist postdoc research fellow at the University of Auckland, and her research is centred in understanding the seafloor geomorphology 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.

El estudio de Queen Charlotte Sound-Tōtaranui Los plásticos pueden entrar al mar de muchas formas diferentes, como a través de aguas residuales, por aportaciones fluviales, acuicultura o actividades pesqueras, etc. Los residuos grandes de plásticos pueden romperse en trozos más pequeños y generar las micro-partículas (< 5mm), que no se identifican […]
