The People

Ten scientific institutions are participating in the Pelagic programme and the scientists are listed below. Many other people are also involved, including support, technical staff and divers. The support and technical staff provide vital assistance to the scientists in maintaining and setting up their equipment. The divers are essential for setting up the mesocosms as well as collecting marine animals used in some of the experiments. Click on each name to find out more about the person.
