Plymouth Marine Laboratory

Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) has a global reputation for scientific excellence and undertakes interdisciplinary research to address key scientific and socially relevant questions by ‘listening to the ocean’.

The research at PML contributes to the issues of global change, sustainability and pollution, delivering solutions for national and international marine and coastal programmes.

The Impact Lab also benefits from PML’s expertise in creating some of the most detailed and longest-established marine datasets available. PML employs over 30 computing, and data visualisation specialists, a group of more than fifteen ecosystem modelling specialists as well as the facilities and expertise needed to derive information / understanding from data.

Sharing this knowledge, with industry, policy-makers and fellow scientists, is a core business focus for PML, which has established a commercial trading subsidiary (PML Applications Ltd) to work with businesses in translating knowledge generated by its scientists into innovative solutions to social and economic challenges.
