Dr Jamie Shutler
Associate Professor in Earth Observation


I am an oceanographer with a wide range of interests that exploit in situ observations, satellite Earth observation and models to study and monitor the marine environment, particularly in relation to climate and water quality. This includes studying atmosphere-ocean gas exchange of climatically important gases, the distribution of calcium carbonate in the ocean, evaluating the quality of model and Earth observation data, and developing approaches for water quality monitoring of bathing waters and aquaculture sites.  I have also published research on developing and exploiting computer vision techniques for biometrics (gait), medical imaging (breast cancer) and surface ocean currents.

My reserach has been featured in the Guardian Environment, BBC news, Al Jazeera TV, contributed to UK parlimentary enquiries and guided international agencies.

For teaching my office hours are Mondays (09:30 - 10:30) and Wednesdays (09:30 - 10:30).  Alternatively, please email me for an appointment or knock if you see that my office door is open.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Physical and biological oceanography
  • Marine biogeochemistry
  • Satellite Earth observation
  • Remote sensing
