Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory is based in Brownlow Street, Liverpool, England. In April 2010, POL merged with the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS) to form the National Oceanography Centre. The Liverpool laboratory's scientific research focuses on oceanography encompassing global sea-levels and geodesy, numerical modelling of continental shelf seas and coastal sediment processes. This research alongside activities of surveying, monitoring, data management and forecasting provides strategic support for the wider mission of the Natural Environment Research Council.
The National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool, formerly the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, is located on the campus of the University of Liverpool; the British Oceanographic Data Centre also has its home here. Together with colleagues at Southampton, the National Oceanography Centre is part of the Natural Environment Research Council. Information on activities at Liverpool can be found via the web links below.
The research centres are North West Shelf Operational Oceanographic System; Liverpool Knowledge Quarter.
Sea Level Science now constitutes one of the three main areas of expertise of POL research, the other two closely related fields being shelf sea science and numerical modelling of ocean processes. Although Sea Level Science has come a long way since Horrocks' measurements at Toxteth, the scientific importance of the subject is as great as ever, and Liverpool remains one of its main worldwide centres of excellence and its ‘UK home’.
