24 August, 2017Feature Researcher
Dr. Benjamin Kürten is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Red Sea Research Center at KAUST. With over seven years of research experience of the Red Sea, he is emerging as a leading voice in biogeochemical cycles, food webs and ecohydrographic patterns in the region. We asked Ben to share with us some of his research interests and what inspired his passion for marine science. Read more about his story here.
15 June, 2017Wave to the Future
The Saudi Aramco-KAUST center for Marine Environmental Observations completed installation of a surface current mapping system along the central Red Sea. These high frequency radar systems to map surface ocean currents, a first for Saudi Arabia, will enable near real-time information of currents, which carry nutrients, pollutants, stranded boats, or anything that floats.
