Maritime Environmental Research (MER) Group

WMU's marine environmental management department expanded quite a bit going into 2013. This prompted the previous ad-hoc department to form the Maritime Environmental Research Group, or MER Group. The group consists of experts on underlying ecological factors in coastal and ocean environments, global ocean challenges, operational strategies, as well as the management tools and instruments applied in integrated coastal and ocean management.

Building on funds secured from projects and consultancies, the group has now established a core team of researchers working in fields varying from maritime spatial planning, HNS transportation, marine resources management, oil spill issues, invasive species, and ballast water management.
