Bennet’s experience cuts across various areas of biological, chemical and physical oceanography, with the application of remote sensing and Earth Observation (EO) as a tool to addressing issues in these and other areas. He has worked with the University of Ghana for more than 10 years including working on the Monitoring for Environment and Security in Africa (MESA) project and currently on the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security and Africa (GMES & Africa) programme. He developed the ocean state early-warning system that provided alerts on ocean conditions to fishermen as well as all ocean users in West Africa by the University of Ghana under the MESA project, which was enhanced for wider dissemination under the GMES & Africa programme.
Bennet has been involved in mentoring both the young and old in the use and application of satellite EO data and products. His current responsibility with the University of Ghana includes developing oceanographic products and services using EO data, provision of training in shoreline management, ocean modelling and forecasting, and promotion of use of ocean products and services.
