This is the personal site of Donald R Noble, a civil engineer currently working as a Research Associate in Marine Renewables at The University of Edinburgh, focusing on tools and policies to foster nascent marine renewable energy technologies, primarily tidal stream and wave energy.
I recently completed a doctorate in offshore renewable energy, at the University of Edinburgh, based at the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility. My research investigated currents in the tank, wave-current interactions, and medium-scale model testing in a combined wave-current environment.
My website has my thoughts on a range of topics of interest to me, and hopefully other people too.
- My research at FloWave, and related topics,
- Maps and OpenStreetMap,
- Photography, and photogenic places I’ve visited,
- Trips and travelling,
- plus various other musings and reviews.
