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.”

Lauren’s masters dissertation is available to download below:

Presentations to SCOPAC, January 2018 - Lauren Burt and Emma Harris

Both the 2016 and 2017 winners of the Bradbury’s Bursay, Lauren Burt and Emma Harris, were invited to present their findings to SCOPAC on the 19th January 2018. Their presentations were well received by Members and highlighted the benefits of supporting young engineers in the industry.

The 2017 winner of the Bradbury's Bursary was Emma Harris. Emma's research investigated the cause of the recent breach at Pagham Harbour using data from the South-east Regional Monitoring Programme.

Emma's research proposal was well thought out with clear aims, objectives and a robust methodology for investigating the morphological evolution at Pagham Harbour.

Emma writes, "I am delighted and feel incredibly honoured to receive this bursary".

Research into barrier beaches was a subject of great interest to Professor Bradbury, having developed a tool for predicting overwashing of barrier beaches for his Ph.D.
