What happens at the National Oceanography Centre

The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) undertakes integrated ocean research and technology development from the coast to the deep ocean. It provides long-term marine science capability including: major facilities; sustained ocean observing, mapping and survey; data management, and scientific advice.

The centre works in partnership with other organisations to ensure research improves our understanding of the whole earth system, and that this understanding is actively used to enhance policy, management and economic growth.

  • Tidal science is a key part of the extensive numerical modelling capability and research of the centre. It helps inform fieldwork operations, and can help us understand the context of recorded data (for example, are marine species feeding/travelling in an area at  a particular state of the tide?)
     
  • The work of the centre is important in understanding the whole earth system and making projections about future scenarios. For more information on how the work of the centre makes a difference please see NOC’s website.
