Activities The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) is a fully-owned research laboratory of the Natural Environment Research Council. Our world-class research includes:

* physics of estuarine, coastal and shelf sea circulation
* wind wave dynamics & sediment transport processes
* global sea level science and geodetic oceanography
* marine technology & operational oceanography

We live on an ocean dominated planet - two thirds is covered by water. The oceans directly affect our planet's climate and ecosystems. They are all undergoing massive changes; we need to discover and understand more about them. Our science and research is now more important and relevant than ever.

Nowhere else on Earth are the signals of Global Warming as dramatic as in the Arctic. The retreat of summer sea ice has a large impact on the biogeochemistry of the Arctic and the climate of North-western Europe. We have exciting plans to use our long-standing expertise in shelf sea modelling to address climate change impacts on Arctic shelf waters.

NOC's friendly, lively research environment is greatly enhanced by visiting scientists and postgraduate students. Are you interested in studying with us? Please see our Graduate Studies section, and contact us if you wish to undertake research in our Centre.
