NERC Marine Planning Moorings Policy

NERC Marine Planning has implemented a new Moorings Policy in support of the NERC Marine Facilities Programme.  The Moorings Policy will apply to all applications which request the use of mooring equipment from the National Marine Equipment Pool (NMEP). To help implement the new Policy, NERC is seeking members for a new Expert Scientific Moorings Assessment Group.

Research cruise opportunities for ocean acidification studies

Below is a brief description of three ocean acidification cruises that will be run as part of the UK programme on ocean acidification. We are keen to consider requests from international scientists to participate, although berths will be limited. Participating scientists will be able to benefit from the wide range of observational measurements which we will be making anyway, and by taking samples from our bioassay experiments. Spare berths will be allocated based on the interest of the proposed science and how well it fits in with what we are already planning.
