Where does river water go when it enters the ocean? Rivers are the major source of pollution in the oceans and if we are to clean them up, we first need to know where the majority of the pollution is concentrated. By creating a mathematical model for river outflows – verified by laboratory experiments and fieldwork -– the goal is to be able to predict which areas are most susceptible to pollution from rivers and thus coordinate clean-up operations as effectively as possible.

Join us for our first virtual get-together. Register here!
Hopefully you have all been good and staying at home. The Oxford10 Committee has been too. But we’ve been working hard to help the Oxford10 community stay connected in these weird and (admittedly not so) wonderful circumstances.
Our first event is a light get-together for everyone to just catch up and find out how everyone is coping (or not). We are also looking to organise more events, including an online pub quiz and movie night, and would very much like to crowdsource! Bring your ideas, tell us what you’d like to have – and if lockdown ends early #hallelujah, we can always organise them in person!
