Thames barrier
The first predications of coastal sea level with warming of two degrees by 2040 show an average rate of increase three times higher than the 20th century rate of sea level rise. These predictions have been published today in the Proceedings of the...
RRS James Cook
Today the Royal Research ship (RRS) James Cook will embark on an expedition to discover new sources of the rare metals, critical for low carbon technologies. This forty day investigation will use robotic submarines, autonomous seafloor instruments...
Foraminiferal species from the Porcupine Abyssal Plain, NE Atlantic (4850 m water depth).
New research, published today in Progress in Oceanography by scientists at the NOC and the University of Southampton, show that deep sea hills increase the biodiversity of forams - a very important group of shelled protozoans. There are over 25...
Submarine glider being recovered, accompanied by a rare Atlantic Wreckfish
A fleet of ten marine robots has successfully completed an ambitious two-week mission off northwest Scotland, despite being hit by a succession of Atlantic storms with winds gusting up to 60 mph and waves up to 7 m high. The mission comprised the...
The TOMCAT teat
Leading scientists from across the world travelled to NOC for the first TOMCAT working group meeting. This group aims to take advantage of the fast development of optical technologies to help progress understanding of the ocean carbon cycle, which...

Bythocaris
A new study recently published in the journal Global Biogeochemical Cycles offers clues to the potential impact of ocean acidification deep-sea, shell-forming organisms. This collaborative research, involving contributions from the National...
Methane hydrate recovered from ocean sediments off Svalbard
NOC scientists have contributed to the publication of an authoritative new report on the impacts of ocean warming on species, ecosystems, and ocean ‘goods and services,’ such as carbon management, fisheries and coastal protection....
Shells on a beach
Science and industry will now be able to map beaches and sandbanks without getting any feet wet. This follows three years of collaborative research resulting in a new commercial licence between National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and Marlan Maritime...
