Data Center Description
The Environment Agency is involved in developing national
surveillance techniques for monitoring the state of the
environment, including marine surveillance, management of
national databases, including those involving coastal data,
production of reports, web pages and other media to form an
opinion on the state of pollution of the environment.

The Inter-Agency Committee on Marine Science and Technology
(IACMST) maintains an overview of marine activities across
Government. It encourages links between Government and the
national marine community, the wider application of marine
science and technology, optimum use of major UK marine
facilities, training and education and international links.
