Future developments and acknowledgements
What is MCCIP?
MCCIP is a partnership between scientists, government, its agencies and NGOs. The principal aim is to develop a long-term multi-disciplinary approach to understanding and communicating the implications of climate change in our seas.
Sponsoring partners are:
Countryside Council for Wales, Defra, Dept. of the Environment Northern Ireland, Environment Agency, Natural England, RSPB, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Scottish Executive, Scottish Natural Heritage, States of Guernsey, States of Jersey, Welsh Assembly Government, WWF. (More partners welcomed.)
Future Developments for MCCIP
- Workshops and Seminars
- Links with industry
- Response centre for marine climate change enquiries
- Explore applications of future UKCIP marine climate change scenarios
Quality Assured Science
The MCCIP Steering Group (SG) consists of the sponsoring partners together with scientific experts from SAHFOS, CRU, MECN, FRS, Natural Environment Research Council 'RAPID' programme and Cefas.
The SG commissioned the contributing scientists and appointed an 'Expert Advisory Panel' who reviewed the quality of the science in the ARC.

This is the first annual report card. We will publish this annually to keep you up to date with new developments in the science and the rapidly changing marine environment.
Future publications will chart the progress of the themes explored here and look in greater detail at regional changes and the linkage between people and the marine environment. We will also report on new findings, improvements in our understanding of the science (increasing certainty) and highlight any major knowledge gaps.
