Our expertise

Since the 1970s we have been studying the fundamentals of changing physics, chemistry and biology of marine systems and increasingly contribute to scientific predications of future scenarios. We have expertise in monitoring the consequences for climate change in marine ecosystems with international leadership in the North Atlantic and Arctic, through to local Scottish coastal systems.
