At any one time, PML is undertaking around 100 research projects with science and interests stretching from local to global, from lakes to oceanic environments. We collaborate in research projects across the world, and the length and breadth of the global ocean from the poles to the tropics. Our strategic research feeds into national and international strategies such as for the UK and other governments or regulators, and maps onto strategies of public sector bodies, space agencies, charitable foundations and philanthropists, NGOs and industry.
