Large global changes, and climate change in particular, are having significant impacts on the environment. The study of impacts and mitigation/adaptation measures in the marine environment requires a truly interdisciplinary approach.

The programme specialises in the challenges facing the marine environment and is part of the University's programme of teaching and research in climate change related issues.
