About National Oceanography Centre

The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) is the UK’s leading institution for integrated coastal and deep ocean research. We undertake and facilitate world-class agenda-setting scientific research and technology development to understand the global ocean. We do this by solving challenging multidisciplinary, large scale, long-term marine science problems to underpin international and UK public policy, business and societal outcomes. Among the resources that we provide on behalf of the UK are the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC), the National Marine Equipment Pool (NMEP), the National Tide and Sea Level Facility (NTSLF), the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) and British Ocean Sediment Core Research Facility (BOSCORF). We also proudly operate two global-class Royal Research Ships James Cook and Discovery. NOC is a company limited by guarantee set up under the law of England and Wales (11444362) and registered as a charity (1185265).
