About the UK-IMON Initiative

The Marine Science Co-ordination Committee (MSCC) agreed that a national marine observatory should be developed to support the wider marine observational needs across government. The work proposed will achieve best use of national capability and promote a high degree of collaboration among agencies to ensure that specific evidence needs can be delivered in the most effective way. The initiative will ensure that a national marine observatory is in place to improve the evidence base for future assessments of environmental status, using the most cost-effective technologies available to the UK marine science community.
