The current heatwave affecting UK and much of Northwest Europe may have its origins in the Atlantic Ocean, according to research undertaken by scientists from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and the University of Southampton.
The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, on a visit to the NOC in Southampton, has today unveiled an ambitious plan to bring together all of the Government’s international oceans work under a single strategy for the first time.
The NOC People Strategy has at its centre a vision of NOC as ‘a great place to work where people succeed and deliver great work’. NOC is using the Investors in People framework to review progress towards this vision and make improvements; and gained accreditation in September 2015, with very positive feedback from the Assessor.
On 09 May 2018, National Oceanography Centre (NOC) scientists will set sail towards the Fram Strait, between Greenland and Svalbard, as part of the ARISE project, which will investigate the impact of warming on the Arctic food chain. ARISE forms part of the £16 million, UK flagship Changing Arctic Ocean programme of Arctic research.
