Welcome to the webpages of the London Ocean Group! We are all academic researchers from universities across London (and beyond) who study topics relating to the ocean. The group is currently coordinated by Dr Helen Czerski of UCL. We welcome members from any area of ocean study who either live or work in London, and who would like to connect with others in these fields. Currently we have about 120 members from eight universities, and we are still growing. Our aim is to provide a forum for these researchers to get to know each other and to learn about the research being carried out here in London. We hold meetings every 6-8 weeks, each with two academic talks from either our members or visitors to London. The long-term aim is to move towards being a virtual oceanography institution for London, with a cross-disciplinary community that can share knowledge and build collaborations based on those new links.
As well as our academic meetings, we have upcoming workshops and smaller events aimed at bridging the gaps between disciplines. Our Upcoming Meetings page has a list of what is currently planned, and if you have suggestions for future meetings, please do let us know.
We also maintain a list of ocean-related events in London: seminars, films, outreach events, policy discussions and more. If you have events to add to this list (which is sent out to our group in a monthly e-mail summary), please e-mail Hannah Wood.
