Find out more about MAREMAP and the background to the project
The Marine Environmental Mapping Programme (MAREMAP) aims to achieve common, national objectives in seafloor and shallow geological mapping addressing themes such as habitat mapping, Quaternary science, coastal and shelf sediment dynamics and the assessment of human impacts and geohazards in the marine environment. MAREMAP will work towards integration of common geoscience objectives across NERC organisations.
MAREMAP is a joint initiative led by the British Geological Survey (BGS), the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), with partners from the University of Southampton, Channel Coastal Observatory, the University of Plymouth, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) and Marine Scotland.
MAREMAP was launched at the National Maritime Muesum in London in June 2010.
