organisation profile

The Laboratory is a component body of the Natural Environment Research Council. Research is carried out on the dynamics of the seas over the continental shelf and its margins, and on sea levels, ocean topography and tides, worldwide. The British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) are housed at the Laboratory. POL's scientific research focuses on oceanography encompassing global sea-levels and geodesy, numerical modelling of continental shelf seas and coastal sediment processes.This research alongside activities of surveying, monitoring, data management and forecasting provides strategic support for the wider mission of the Natural Environment Research Council. POL is a leading world centre in tidal prediction (with related interests in earth tides and storm surges) and a leading European centre in modelling and forecasting shelf sea dynamics.
