Seas under threat
As the size of the human population and the scale of economic activity rise around the world, our seas are increasingly impacted as they are used as a source of resources, as a convenient dumping ground for pollutants, and are affected by climate change. Research at NOC examines these various impacts, both to quantify the changes that the oceans are undergoing and to investigate ways in which we can improve the stewardship of our seas.
Projects and collaborations
Collaboration with world leading groups, including significant partnering with the universities of Southampton and Liverpool, is the core of our marine research and technology endeavour. NOC is undertaking a number of projects that address a diverse range of threats to our seas
