Description PML has contributed to a number of parliamentary inquiries relating to the marine environment or wider scientific topics over the last year and provided ministerial briefings. Advice has also been provided to policy makers either on a one-to-one basis or through PML scientists' participation in numerous advisory committees nationally and internationally. All of these activities contribute to raising awareness of the complex challenges the ocean is facing.
Exploitation Route Parliamentary select committees use evidence provided by PML scientists within their reports to government. Briefings to ministers and to MPs may result in changes to proposed legislation when, e.g. bills are being debated. Policy makers use advice to assist them in their decision-making and in shaping research priorities.
Sectors Agriculture, Food and Drink,Energy,Environment,Government, Democracy and Justice

 
Description The overall aim of this funding is to provide excellent, effective and high impact value-adding activities that benefit the UK, and provide leadership at an international level.

JNCC is the public body that advises the UK Government and devolved administrations on UK-wide and international nature conservation. JNCC's work helps maintain and enrich biological diversity and conserve geological features. It also helps sustain natural systems, which provide the core "services" we all depend on like food, fresh water and clean air. In this way they contribute to economic growth and social well-being and are integral to sustainable development. JNCC itself is a forum that brings together the UK's four country conservation bodies. They advise Government and a wide range of bodies to help join up policy and to deliver a strong and cost-effective evidence base by helping to see that the best possible return is achieved from investment in research and surveillance in the UK and internationally. As chair of the Marine Protected Areas Sub-Committee we ensure that scientific advice on designating marine reserves across the UK is robust

PML also presenting science evidence and KE information at two exhibition stands (led by PML, and jointly funded by the German BIOACID programme, the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre and the University of Brest). Ocean-related issues were given a relatively high profile at COP22, including a high level UN Ocean Action Event which was, for the first time included within the UN sessions. PML was invited to speak at one of the session during this UN Ocean Action Day on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) session on Blue Economies and Building Resilience to Climate Change, and was an author of the Strategic Action Roadmap on Oceans and Climate launched during the day: https://nicholasinstitute.duke.edu/sites/default/files/publications/strategic_action_roadmap_on_oceans_and_climate_november_2016.pdf

Impact The Ocean and Climate Platform was formed to bring together experts to develop messages about the importance of the ocean in climate change and provides summaries, briefing notes and short messages for the general public as well as policy makers. It also also developed policy recommendations based on position papers, particularly in regards to the need for increased knowledge and research on the links between Ocean and Climate, and also provide options so that the Ocean is better integrated into climate negotiations. In the Platform, a working group has responsibility for the structuring of guidelines and actions regarding these policy recommendations. I was a member of that group, and during COP-21 identified where the ocean can be included in the draft negotiating text and how this could be disseminated to policy makers before COP-21.

Title Application of 14C labelled DMSO 
Description The use of 14C labelled DMSO has been trialled and used to determine the amount of carbon from DMSO that marine microbes are utilising as either a source for growth (assimilation) or a source of energy (dissimilation). This methodology has been added to stable tracer methods to determine the sources and sinks of DMSO in seawater during a time series at a coastal long term monitoring station, L4 in the western English Channel. There is a resulting time series for 2014 and 2016.

Title Abundance of microbial phytoplankton abundance and bacteria through the water column during the AMT28/JR18001 cruise in 2018. 
Description Fresh seawater samples were collected in clean 250 mL polycarbonate bottles using a Seabird CTD system containing a 24 bottle rosette of 20 L Niskin bottles from 200 m to the surface at predawn and solar noon CTD casts. Samples were stored in a refrigerator and analysed within 2 hours of collection. Fresh samples were measured using a Becton Dickinson FACSort flow cytometer which characterised and enumerated Prochlorococcus sp. and Synechococcus sp. (cyanobacteria) and pico- and eukaryote phytoplankton, based on their light scattering and autofluorescence properties. The resulting data provide information on the abundance of marine microbes in the sunlit upper ocean in the Atlantic from approx. 50 degrees north to 50 degrees south and form part of an ongoing time series, which began in 1995.

Title Abundance of phytoplankton, heterotrophic nanoflagellates and bacteria through the water column at time series station L4 in the Western English Channel, 2007-2018. 
Description This dataset contains depth profiles of the mean abundance of groups of plankton as cells per millilitre, measured using flow cytometry from the long-term sampling station, L4 (50°15.0'N; 4°13.0'W) situated off the south-west coast of England, United Kingdom. The groups quantified are divided into phytoplankton and heterotrophs. Phytoplankton groups quantified are: Synechococcus sp. (cyanobacteria)(Syn), picoeuakryotes (smaller than 2 µm) (Peuk), cryptophytes (Crypto), coccolithophores (Cocco), small dinoflagellates (<20 µm) (Dino), Phaeocystis sp. (Pcystis) and nanoeukaryotes (Neuk) not already mentioned (2-20 µm). Heterotrophs quantified are: heterotrophic nanoflagellates (HNAN), bacteria with relatively high nucleic acid content (HNA) and bacteria with relatively low DNA. Samples were collected and analysed in duplicate (heterotrophs) or triplicate (phytoplankton) from 2 m, 10 m, 25 m and 50 m depth. In 2007 the Secchi depth was sampled instead of the 10 m depth. NOTE: In 2013 an extra column appears in the abundance section and in the standard deviation section. The columns are labelled 'Pnitz'; possibly the chain-forming diatom Pseudo-nitzschia delicatissima. It is also present in 2011 and 2012 where the samples were run using the newest flow cytometer at PML - data still to be supplied. Discrimination is down to better measurement of forward light scatter with the new flow cytometer (a BD Accuri C6).

Title Coupling MEDUSA and ERSEM benthic modules 
Description Incorporation of MEDUSA in FABM framework led to certain degree of modularisation of its code, which allowed to test coupling of its pelagic component with ERSEM benthic modules. The coupled configuration was tested in a global NEMO-FABM-MEDUSA setup (ORCA2). The benefit of coupling is that the lightweight of MEDUSA code suitable for global simulations is combined with considerably more detailed than the default benthic zone description from ERSEM, which will benefit future simulations at a higher resolution and allow better estimates of contribution of shelf seas within the Earth system. Configuration file for MEDUSA-ERSEM is available on PML gitlab server.

Title MEDUSA in FABM 
Description Biogeochemical model MEDUSA (Yool et al, 2013) was incorporated into Framework for Aquatic Biogeochemical Models (FABM). The model was tested in a coupled mode with GOTM, MEDUSA 1D and global (ORCA2) configurations. FABM code was compared with original implementation in terms of similarity of output and performance. In 1D NEMO configuration results were identical within double numerical precision, and in 3D within single precision. In terms of timing, FABM version showed 6-17% overhead compared to original implementation, depending on configuration. For technical reasons, comparison was performed with fixed carbonate system and without slow detritus sinking.

Title Modelling benthic macrofaunal diversity on the North West European Shelf 
Description Spatiotemporal dynamics of benthic macrofaunal diversity on the North West European Shelf was investigated using NEMO-ERSEM model for a 20-year period. The model was parameterised implementing six subgroups of benthic macrofauna with differing feeding modes, diet preferences and physiological rates, based on 1D experiments representing L4 station. The model was initiated with spatially uniform distributions of each group to study adjustment of communities to the governing conditions of physical environment and food supply. Distribution of biomasses of various groups and biodiversity indices were analysed for a set of stations. Outcomes of this work were presented at MERP final science meeting and EGU General Assembly 2018.

Title SST collected by surfers in the southern UK and western Ireland between 2014 and 2017 
Description This dataset consists of sea surface temperature (SST) data collected by recreational surfers around the southern UK and Western Ireland coastline over the period from 5th January 2014 to 8th February 2017. These data were collected as part of a research project supported by Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Over the study period, the recreational surfers collected 297 independent samples of SST. The surfers were equipped with a UTBI-001 Tidbit V2 Temperature Data Logger and a Garmin etrex 10 GPS. The Garmin etrex 10 device was used to extract GPS information (latitude and longitude) for each surf. The Tidbit V2 temperature logger was attached, using cable-ties, at mid-point to the leash of the surfboards to ensure continuous contact with seawater when surfing, measuring temperature in the top metre of the water column. Roughly every 6 months over the study period, the Tidbit V2 temperature loggers were rigorously compared with a VWR1620-200 traceable digital thermometer (with an accuracy of 0.05 degrees C at the range of 0 to 100 degrees C) at 1 degree C intervals from 6 to 25 degrees C using a PolyScience temperature bath. Over the study period, all sensors performed within the manufacturers technical specifications. A piecewise regression to model was used to correct any Tidbit V2 temperature data collected to remove systematic biases between sensors, such that the errors in each sensor were within the accuracy of VWR1620-200 traceable digital thermometer. Temperature data were collected at 10 second intervals during each surfing session. The data were processed to remove any data collected before and after entering the water and SST were extracted by computing the median of the remaining data. Standard deviations on the remaining data are also provided to give an index of SST variability during each surf session.

PI Contribution The Ocean Under Stress Consortium: I have led an international collaboration of ocean researchers and stakeholders which has developed knowledge exchange at key UN events (e.g. UNFCCC COPs and SBSTA, CBD COP, UNCLOS ICP, Rio+20 since 2009). We have organised successful side-events, press events and exhibition stands at the UNFCCC COPs since 2009. These have enabled the scientists to engage delegates and participants for the last 5 years, significantly raising policy-makers' understanding of OA and other ocean stressors. The Ocean Stress Guide produced for policy makers has the support of many international and intergovernmental organisations (see last page of the document: www.oceanunderstress.com).
Collaborator Contribution Each partner contributes to the activities either in money or in kind. In kind activities will include providing scientists to work on the exhibition stands to engage the delegates. Consortium members will also apply for at least one side event at COPs giving a well-targeted outlet for KE material as well as further opportunity to engage delegates. Some consortium members will translate the guide for policy makers into the language of the country where the COP is help, others will help pay for production and printing for the guide and the exhibition stand, others will cover logistics, travel and subsistence costs. Thus the Hot Sour and Breathless: Ocean under stress (available at www.oceanunderstress.com) summary for policy makers is available in a number of languages.
Impact A better understanding of the climate related ocean stressors by UN delegates so much so that for the first time ocean ecosystems have been mentioned in the UNFCCC Paris Agreement.

PI Contribution I am the co-chair of this project (see https://pft.ees.hokudai.ac.jp/satellite/members/index.shtml). With the goal of comparing and improving and satellite algorithms that detect phytoplankton functional types, an international effort was put together under the endorsement by the International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG). The project involves participants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, with expertise in both satellite algorithm development and in situ observations. As part of my PhD I published the first algorithm inter-comparison paper and have since worked closely with the international group, resulting in the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers.
Collaborator Contribution The international group has has met almost annually since its establishment in 2013. Together with our partners we have contributed to the publication of three recent peer-reviewed papers and contributed to an International Ocean-Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) Phytoplankton Functional Type report (15).

Impact Report produced on 'Dealing with the plastic problem: Cornwall as a world-leading example', April 2016 The first targeted workshop hosted by the University of Exeter's Marine Ecology and Conservation Network focused on the issue of plastic marine litter. 32 individuals were brought together from a range of sectors with specific interests in the issue. The aim was to begin to formulate achievable actions "Dealing with the plastic problem: Cornwall as a world-leading example." During discussions the over-arching topics covered were: 1. The key unknown impacts - social, economic and ecological. 2. The possible solutions - what is already happening and areas where there is a need for innovation. 3. The opportunities and barriers to facilitating desired changes. The group agreed that there was a strong will to progress this agenda in Cornwall but that there was a clear need for wider collaboration with additional sectors including tourism, retail and industry (production and waste management), particularly the fishing industry.

Results and Impact The second workshop of the 'Network of Experts for ReDeveloping Models of the European Marine Environment' was held on 22-23 March 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, jointly organized by DG Environment and DG JRC (Water and Marine Resources Unit) within the framework of the Administrative Arrangement (N110661/ENV.C.2/2016/733192) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MFSD). The aim of this workshop was to continue the information exchange between the Commission and marine modelling experts. Another important objective of this initiative is to narrow the gap between modellers and decision makers in order to better exploit the full utility of models. In this context, the workshop consisted of 17 presentations covering the wide use of marine ecosystem models to address several indicators of the MFSD in coastal zones and European regional seas, including assessment, indicator development and scenario building. The presentations dealt with (1) General lectures, (2) Eutrophication, (3) Hydrography, (4) Higher Trophic Levels and (5) Fish. The participants were invited to join the network informal 'Network of experts on the Modelling of the European Marine Environment (MEME)'. DG Environment and DG JRC emphasized the added value of a joint effort to further develop modelling capabilities with the objective of providing useful advice for policy makers.

Results and Impact I attended two AccessLab workshops where I was paired with a local policy maker. In the first workshop, I was paired with Tessa de G. , a counsellor from Dartmouth town council. We discussed the issue of tourist buses idling in Dartmouth town centre and I helped Tessa evidence the carbon footprint of these buses. She then used this evidence to encourage the town council to ban idling engines in Dartmouth. This small action could lead to a savings of up to 25 Tonnes of CO2 per summer. At the second AccessLab workshop, we were invited to contribute to an upcoming paper, and Tessa and I wrote a case study about our successful interaction.
