Dr Jamie Shutler
Associate Professor in Earth Observation


I am an oceanographer and engineer with a wide range of interests that exploit in situ observations, satellite Earth observation and models to study and monitor land-water-atmosphere interactions and 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, developing approaches for water quality monitoring of bathing waters and aquaculture sites and land-water interactions in fresh water reservoirs.  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.  My research team (Jamie Lab) currently comprises 1 post-doc researcher, 8 PhD students and an MSci student.  All of our research software is open-source and free to use. The FluxEngine open source python toolbox for calculating atmosphere-ocean gas fluxes is freely avaialable here.

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
