The Extended Ellett Line
Extended Ellett Line Project
The Extended Ellett Line is a project to measure and understand the ocean to the west of the UK. We are looking at how and why the currents, temperature and salinity have changed over the past few decades. We also investigate the impact those changes have on climate and ecosystems.
The Extended Ellett Line Project is jointly run by the National Oceanography Centre and SAMS, and is funded through the Natural Environment Research Council's National Capabilty programme
