This year we celebrate our 20th birthday at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC). I still remember very clearly the first time I visited NOC in 1997 on a open day. I was captivated walking into the building and knew that one day I would have to work here.

Some statistics in the 20 year history:

  • We have graduated 481 PhD students since moving to the Centre in 1995;
  • We have published 9,801 papers with the SO14 3ZH post code since 1995 and these have attracted 107,573 citations.
