Modelling at PML
PML’s internationally recognised Marine System Modelling Group refines and builds new models to address the emerging challenges facing the global ocean and society that depends upon it.
There are increasing calls from policy makers and ocean users to make projections of how the ocean may change and in turn affect the resources the ocean provides. Combining ecological, physical and chemical understanding into dynamic models of the ocean provides us with tools with which we can assess the vulnerabilities and opportunities of marine systems and promote good management. We work with colleagues internally, nationally and across the globe applying models to a wide range of pressing questions, developing new methods to safeguard the sustainability of the ocean and increasing our understanding of how it works.
Model outputs and products are of interest to a wide range of users including the academic community, policy sector, environmental managers and consultancies.
