Professor Dan Bosence receives the 2021 Duke of Cambridge SCUBA Prize

  • Date17 November 2021

The SCUBA Prize is awarded annually for outstanding achievements in research in scuba diving

Professor Dan Bosence, alongside the Isle of Purbeck Sub-Aqua Club, was presented the award by HRH Duke of Cambridge at a ceremony in Kensington Palace.

The project, 'Bumps in the Bay' saw collaborative research between Royal Holloway and the Sub-Aqua Club to investigate large underwater circular structures identified by underwater sonar surveys. The Sub-Aqua  Club were able to obtain 32 samples from the 7 sites, which were then analysed by Professor Bosence.

The most likely hypothesis is that these are Tufa Mounds!
