Stephen Dye

Stephen Dye was brought up on the Isle of Wight off southern England (probably most famous as the locale of the legenedary rock festival where Jimi Hendrix played one of his last concerts, but also where the eminent 17th-century scientist Robert Hooke was born and raised). At the University of East Anglia, he found his way back to the sea through physical oceanography and joined the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in Lowestoft in 1999. While his focus is never too far from the flows across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge, he has become increasingly involved in the more difficult challenge of explaining science to policy-makers and marine managers through the Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership ( He is a recent convert to geocaching, a hobby that satisfies the twin urges for gadgets and the outdoors.
