SCOPAC £500

Bradbury’s Bursary 2016-17

Professor Andy BradburyIn honour of Professor Andrew Bradbury’s contribution to coastal engineering across the SCOPAC region, a £500 bursary is awarded annually to a student of the University of Southampton’s “Engineering in the Coastal Environment” Masters course.

In 2016 Lauren Burt was awarded the £500 Bradbury’s bursary as a contribution towards her masters thesis fieldwork investigating the physical and geotechnical properties of the substrate in the lee of Hurst Spit, Hampshire.

The thesis proposal was original and well written, with direct application to future management of the site as well as wider relevance to other barrier beaches and spits across the SCOPAC region.  

Lauren writes, “I was honoured and extremely proud to win the 2016 Bradbury Bursary set up by SCOPAC. This was awarded upon review of the scoping study prepared for this thesis, and supported both fieldwork and data analysis.”
