Our research groups oversee the majority of research work in Ocean and Earth Science.

This is often undertaken in collaboration with colleagues from other disciplines or other institutions. Many activities are integrated with the Southampton-based part of the NERC-owned National Oceanography Centre (NOC), with whom we share purpose-built premises on our Waterfront Campus.  

This video demonstrates the high impact, ground-breaking interdisciplinary research happening here at Ocean and Earth Science.

Our main research groups are listed below. Each group page carries details of its researchers, its main activities and the projects that are most closely associated with it. 'Projects' themselves are broad-ranging in size and scope. For convenience, these extend to a number of managed resources and services. The range of specialised research and complementary activities stemming from these are listed under the broad-ranging Projects heading.

Some of these in turn actively offer facilities, resources and consultancy services to the wider academic and commercial communities.

We share the Waterfront Campus of the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS) with Natural Environment Research Council’s Research Centre, The National Oceanography Centre. If you cannot find who you are looking for, it might be because they work for our collaborative partner, The National Oceanography Centre. Please check their website.
