ocean science at Birmingham
Although far from the oceans, the University of Birmingham has many staff focussed on scientific ocean drilling and marine geology research. Birmingham academics have led ocean expeditions to uncover the structure of mid-ocean ridges and the edges of the continents. They have sailed to the edges of Antarctica and to the warmest tropical oceans in search of Earth’s climate history. And they use computer simulations to understand the oceans' past and predict the future. This exhibition tells the story of some of this research.
