Welcome to the School of Ocean Sciences, one of the largest university Marine Science departments in Europe, a multidisciplinary department located on the shores of the Menai Strait, North Wales, UK.
"Understanding the oceans is a major challenge for modern science. Even after a hundred years of intense study, the oceans remain under-explored, and our knowledge of many of the key-processes occuring within the oceans is fragmentary.
At Bangor we are justly proud of our long-established tradition of excellence in research and teaching in marine science. The School of Ocean Science is a leading international research institution, and one of the largest teaching departments in Europe. We have well-resourced groups in the principal disciplines of biology, chemistry, geology and physics. However, our emphasis on multidisciplinary research effectively ensures ready access to expertise in all aspects of marine science."
Prof Chris Richardson , Head of School of Ocean Sciences
