The National Oceanography Centre seminar series covers the full range of research activities undertaken. Speakers include a large number of invited guests from the UK and abroad. Seminars are held weekly during term-time from October to June.
Visitors should check before travelling to attend a seminar.
Liverpool Seminar Series
A weekly Wednesday seminar takes place at the National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool during the University’s term time. Seminars begin at 14:00 in the Nicholson Lecture Theatre and take the form of a 45 minute presentation with extra time for questions. Refreshments and informal discussion will follow in the Cath Allen Room afterwards.
Although NOC Liverpool specializes in shelf sea and sea level science, the series will be broad in scope, covering all aspects of oceanography, climate and geophysical fluid dynamics. Seminars are attended by PhD students, researchers and senior scientists from NOC and the University of Liverpool.
In 2004 the Proudman Lecture Series was initiated, in which internationally leading researchers working in the fields of physical oceanography, marine geodesy and climate prediction present an overview of their research to the scientists and research students of the wider Liverpool marine sciences community. This community comprises NOC at Liverpool and within the University of Liverpool the Departments of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering, Geography and Biological Sciences. After the lecture the audience is invited to interact with the Proudman Lecturer in a less formal atmosphere, over refreshments served in the Cath Allen Room of the Joseph Proudman Building.
Southampton Seminar Series
The Friday Seminar Series covers the full range of research activities undertaken at National Oceanography Centre Southampton.
Speakers include a large number of invited guests from the UK and abroad.
Seminars are held the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month during term-time from October to June, and take place from 12:00–13:00 in the Henry Charnock Lecture Theatre of the NOC Southampton.
Geology, Geochemistry & Geophysics
The Geology, Geochemistry and Geophysics Seminar Series (G3 Seminars) take place twice a month, usually on Tuesdays at 15:00 in Node Room 074/02. These specialised talks deal with a broad range of topics within the Geosciences and are given by both internal and external researchers at any stage of their academic career.
POETS stands for Processes, Observations, Experiments, Theories and Solutions. Talks and discussions are informal and may relate to work in progress or unfinished, or to recent observations, ideas for grant proposals etc.
Any topic of interest to any researcher in NOC is of interest to POETS Corner.
All seminars take place on Thursdays at 14:00 in room 074/02 unless stated otherwise.
Physical Oceanography and Climate
The Physical Oceanography and Climate (POC) seminars propose a wide range of observational, modelling, and theoretical studies that are relevant to the understanding of physical processes in the ocean and their connections to the global climate system.
Seminars are held on Wednesdays, 11:00 in the Henry Charnock Lecture Theatre and in the Node room 074/02.
Marine Technology Seminars
The Marine Technology seminars are informal monthly seminars in the Innovation Centre that focus on novel technology, including its science applications, specifically to help develop links between the scientific community in NOC (i.e., DST and OES) and engineers/technologists in the Innovation Centre and NMF.
