Amon Kimeli

Kimeli has been carrying out research on sediment dynamics along the Kenyan coast and determining the biophysical conditions that control sediment deposition & accretion and their possible effects on critical habitats including mangroves, sea grasses and coral reefs. Recently he has also been generating shallow and deep-water bathymetry by processing Singlebeam data obtained from acoustic echosounder (EK60) installed in RV Mtafiti and satellite imagery (remote sensing). He has experience in working with some acoustic systems including MBES (Kongsberg EM2040, EM122), SBES (Knudsen 320B, Simrad EK 60) and sidescan sonar (Klein3900). He also has an interest in GIS applications and modelling of sea level rise. He is currently involved in two multi-national and multi-disciplinary research projects. He is also a PhD student at the Universität Bremen, Germany.
