James Barr , Geological Survey Ireland Project Geologist (Geological Survey Ireland)

James graduated from UCD with a degree in Geology before starting work as a Marine Geoscientist on the INFOMAR programme with the Geological Survey in 2015. He has been involved in marine mapping using a range of technologies such as multibeam sonars to map the sea floor, sub-bottom profilers to see the structure below and more recently remotely piloted aircraft systems (or drones) to try to tackle the area known as the “white ribbon”. This is the near shore area typically too shallow to acquire data using traditional methods. James is delighted to part of the CHERISH project as he is also very interested in Climate Change.
