Beatriz Echavarri


    Beatriz (Bea) has a PhD in Marine Science and Technology from the Cantabria University. Her thesis titled "Effects of coastal sanitation system discharges on Cantabria marine ecosystems (Bay of Biscay)" was awarded a prize by the  Government of Cantabria in 2007.

    Bea has done part of her postdoctoral research on marine ecology and aquatic system management at the Centre for Research on Ecological Impacts of Coastal Cities (EICC) at the University of Sydney.

    This researcher works actively in national and international research projects on effects of urban and industrial discharges on water quality and marine ecosystems and on management projects for the local and national administration. She also coordinates master thesis and participates as a teacher on the Master of Hydric Systems Management at the University of Cantabria. This diver (open water) is in charge, together with Xabier Guinda, of the ROV (Remotely operated Vehicle) , the water quality sensors/sondes and the Cantabria water bodies quality control networkdatabase.

    Entre las principales líneas en las que se centra mi investigación se incluye:

    • El análisis de la respuesta de los organismos bentónicos a distintos tipos de presiones a nivel de comunidad, población o individuo
    • El estudio de las variaciones temporales de las comunidades bentónicas intermareales a distintas escalas espaciales
    • El empleo de especies indicadoras (mejillones, ostras) como herramienta para la valoración de la calidad de las aguas frente a vertidos
    • La gestión de sistemas acuáticos
