Marine Science

International leaders in marine science research and teaching.

Marine@Newcastle has a reputation for internationally leading, interdisciplinary research. We address fundamental and applied research challenges, ranging from the microbial scale to the dynamics of large-scale ocean-atmosphere interaction.

We study the conservation and sustainable management of marine resources. We investigate the exploitation and extinction risks to marine species, examining behavioural and population-level responses to anthropogenic interventions. We address coral reef ecosystem management and conservation with the aim of enhancing coral survival and regeneration.

We work alongside policymakers nationally and globally to protect marine ecosystems. Our diverse marine science research informs our research-led teaching at undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research levels.
