Our research combines exciting deep ocean exploration with applied science for industry and Government, covering topics as diverse as hydrothermal vents, submarine landslides, conservation of vulnerable habitats, and carbon capture and storage.
Marine Geoscience Group
The NOC Marine Geoscience group undertakes multi-disciplinary studies of seafloor and sub-seafloor environments throughout the World’s oceans, from the poles to the tropics and from the coast to the deepest trench. The group has an international reputation for research excellence based on technical innovation and the application of those techniques to applied research in marine science. By integrating cutting-edge technology with advanced mapping and observational techniques, NOC geoscientists are able to address major societal and environmental issues across the World's oceans.
