Arctic Links

A vast array of Arctic internet resources is available. Here we list those with direct links to the Changing Arctic Ocean Programme. An important component of the research in the Programme is international collaboration, and the many Arctic and international organisations that the scientists have contact with are summarised here.
  • Ocean Explorer Centre, SAMS

    The Ocean Explorer Centre is the visitor centre to the UK’s oldest oceanographic institution, the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). SAMS delivers the research showcased in the centre.
