The Shore Thing Project

10/2011

Our seas are changing!  Sea temperatures around Britain have already risen in the 20th Century and scientists predict that the average seawater temperature could rise a further 2oC by the 2050s.  An increase in sea temperature will have an impact on our rocky shore species: southern species will flourish further north and northern species could disappear from our shores.  But how will we know?  The Shore Thing project was established to involve A Level students and voluntary groups in collecting valuable long-term data to ensure that these changes are noted and to support the work of the MarClim (Marine Biodiversity and Climate Change Monitoring) project.  For more information please visit www.marlin.ac.uk/shore_thing.
