The States of Jersey has today published a review looking at the impact of climate change on Jersey’s sea levels and coastline. The review, prepared by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), was based on a study commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Department for Infrastructure.
A new project focussing on Sustainable Oceans, Livelihoods and food Security Through Increased Capacity in Ecosystem research (SOLSTICE), aims to strengthen the ability of the nine Western Indian Ocean nations to address the challenges of sustainable management of marine resources.
NOC scientists have contributed to a major new publication by the UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP), which demonstrates the effects climate change is having on UK seas and coastlines.
A new £10 Million research programme to investigate how the Arctic Ocean is changing kicks off today with its first research expedition to the Barents Sea. Over 20 researchers from 16 UK research institutes join forces to understand the knock on effects of rapid warming and sea ice loss in the Arctic region.
Biodiversity losses from deep-sea mining are unavoidable and possibly irrevocable, an international team of 15 marine scientists and legal scholars argue in a letter published today in the journal Nature Geoscience.
New and innovative marine autonomous and robotic vehicles being developed at the NOC are pushing the limits on how we can explore our oceans. With capabilities allowing us to reach new depths, travel under ice and collect data in some of the most environmentally hostile environments, #oceanrobots are the future of marine science.
