Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS)


SAMS science focuses on three major areas:

  1. Discovering the physical, chemical, geological and biological processes that drive the marine system
  2. Describing how our coastal environment, where more than half the human population resides, responds to ever-increasing human pressures
  3. Developing a sustainable blue economy so that we can use the marine environment for the benefit of people without degrading its health and productivity
