The current capacity to investigate the coastal and offshore areas around Scotland includes both research capabilities and survey capacity. Organisations with research interests and capabilities for addressing the regions are available from the ScARF wiki. The table attempts to evaluate not only the academic capacity for study (the experience) but also the resources for study (field and laboratory facilities). A measure of the survey capacity in Scotland is also included. Individuals, companies and research organizations have been listed together with an indication of the resources and previous experience in different sectors (shallow water to deep water).
Please note that the information on current capacity available online is fully updateable and organisations are encouraged to add their details where required.
