Current and Foundation Phase Research Projects

Three scientific challenges underpin the ongoing programme of INSITE research, these are:

  • Changes in the ecosystem which occur due to the placement of man-made structures in the marine environment or as a consequence of their removal;
  • Comparisons between the ecosystem structure and function on native and non- native hard substrate;
  • Variability in ecosystem structure and function on man-made structures against varying temporal scales.
