Life under Water

How Climate Research Changes Our World

Climate research plays a critical role in helping to protect and preserve our oceans for many years to come.

In acknowledgement of the importance of this research, we’ve set free leading articles from our portfolio that relate to the theme of Life under Water. The articles below cover a variety of topics, including oceans, coasts and the management of hydro-environments.

All featured research will be available via this page until 31 December 2020 for you to read, share and cite.
