Mr Maarten Heijnen is a postgraduate research student in Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton, within the Marie Curie ITN ‘SLATE’ project. 

Maarten tries to link flow mode, flow evolution and the consequent deposits of subaqueous flows to their initial trigger. He investigates how reliable subaqueous channel deposits are as long-term recorders of flow triggers such as earthquakes.
