Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory
Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL) is a Research Centre wholly owned and managed by NERC. POL provides services that underpin national operational functions (for example, coastal flood forecasting) and undertakes a NERC-funded strategic research programme in ocean physics and geodesy. POL's main contributions to NCOF will be expertise in:
- sea level science, including the National Tidal and Sea Level Facility;
- modelling and measurement of the physical processes in ocean margin seas;
- developing model infrastructure for coupling physical processes, biogeochemical processes and ecosystems;
- marine data management, including the British Oceanographic Data Centre.
