Scientists have discovered that Antarctic krill – a tiny shrimp-like crustacean – plays a key role in fertilising the Southern Ocean with iron, which stimulates the growth of phytoplankton, the microscopic plants at the base of the marine food web.
PML's remote sensing scientists provide clues to explain apparent richness of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
AlterEco aims to develop a new observational framework based upon the latest marine autonomous systems (MAS) to improve the spatio-temporal understanding of key shelf sea ecosystem drivers. This will be achieved through a sustained observational campaign in the North Sea, cov...
PML ocean scientists are celebrating World Space Week (4-10 October) with an invitation to members of the public to visit the laboratory to find out how satellites in space are unlocking the secrets of our seas.
