The Shelf Sea Oceanography and Meteorology research group was part of the Marine Institute. The group's main objectives were to understand and predict physical processes, which exchange matter and energy across the continental shelves, and to provide underpinning research for biogeochemical studies of coastal and shelf waters. Our research involved a balanced combination of:
- field campaigns
- 3D regional modelling
- fully non-linear process modelling
- innovative sensor development
- theoretical and statistical modelling.
Due to restructuring of the research activities the SSOM group ceased to operate from July 2010, however you can read about our projects and other outreach materials.
