Marine Science and Technologies

Marine science and technology research areas are contained in the Marine Science and Technologies (MAST III) (1994-98) Work Programme. The general objective is to foster the scientific knowledge and technological development necessary to understand how marine systems function at basin scales, in order to prepare for sustainable use of the oceans consistent with the management of marine environmental quality and to determine their role in global change.
