Ocean Sciences

Ocean Sciences

We use practical and theoretical approaches to look at key topics relevant to future ocean change. These include ocean-atmosphere interaction and large-scale ocean dynamics.

Our research focus

Our focus is on modelling sea surface height, ocean circulation and 3-D pathways of marine particles. We look at the biological and geophysical controls of air-sea trace-gas exchange.

State-of-the-art lab and field equipment

We have access to advanced modelling techniques. We have state-of-the-art laboratory and field equipment such as:

  • wave gliders
  • a custom air-sea gas exchange facility
  • specialist gas chromatography facilities
  • a dedicated photochemistry laboratory
