Marine Research in the North Atlantic Ocean

Funding for Marine Research in the North Atlantic Ocean is financed by the Danish government.

The aim of the programme is to generate new knowledge on the marine environment which may contribute to create solutions to challenges like the oceanic heat transport towards the North East Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic, the separation between upper and deeper water masses, growth and recruitment potential for commercially important fish stocks, and acidification of the ocean.

The programme also aims to promote cooperation between the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Denmark on marine research. Only research institutes from these three countries can benefit from the programme.
