A new £22 million marine research programme will investigate the impacts of climate change and human activities on the Atlantic Ocean, from the surface to the deep seabed.

The ambitious, multi-disciplinary Climate Linked Atlantic Sector Science (CLASS) programme aims to provide data, models and technology to help understand the impacts on the Atlantic Ocean environment, and inform action, such as the UK’s commitments to international observing programmes.

The programme will involve developing and deploying cutting-edge marine robotics, combined with ocean modelling and satellite remote sensing.

CLASS will be delivered in partnership by the National Oceanography Centre, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Scottish Association for Marine Science, Marine Biological Association, and Sea Mammal Research Unit.
