Our Science Research Areas

Our Science Research Areas

We engage in research covering a range of oceanographic disciplines to help us to further understand the complex nature of our changing seas.

Our research is organised into five main areas: Marine Geoscience, Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems, Marine Systems Modelling, Marine Physics and Ocean Climate, and Ocean Technology and Engineering. Scientists at the NOC generally focus on one of these key areas of marine science and are responsible for obtaining in-depth knowledge and research. Many projects also involve interdisciplinary research, which involves the collaboration of scientists across a range of science research areas.
