Scroll down to the end of this page for a list of useful web links.

This page lists the blog posts that are reviews of papers (In a Nutshell), reports on events (News), or just me having a blether (Commentary) about my current opinion on the state of affairs. I reserve the right to change my mind (woman's prerogative) and hold opposing views concurrently (engineer's fall-back).

Some of my favourite spots on the interweb: 
Marine renewables industry reports from reNews for 2013, 2014 , 2015.
Find live resource data, download standards, request data, keep updated with the blog at the European Marine Energy Centre: 
Lots of useful stuff for marine energy here: , including wave scatter-plots for several sites:
This site has lots of useful standards: , for example:
Access material from Edinburgh University's Wave Power Group: Energy/Old reports/
Educational videos also available:
Access material from Falne's group at NTNU:

Access material from Maynooth's Center for Ocean Energy Research:
Excellent tutorials on hydrodynamic modelling:
A well-stocked wiki on wave maths (not for beginners):  
A plethora of courses on the engineering foundations required for hydrodynamic modelling can be found at:
