South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI)

The South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI) is a Research Institute conducting research in the South Atlantic from the tropics down to the ice in Antarctica. SAERI’s remit includes the natural and physical sciences. It aims to conduct world class research, teach students, and build capacity within and between the South Atlantic Overseas Territories.

Our approach centres around four focal areas: Marine science; Terrestrial science; Physical science and Data science. Cross-cutting support for delivery of these four focal areas is derived from five pillars of strength: An independently international institution firmly embedded in the South Atlantic; Regional and international research co-ordination through multi-organisational, multinational institutional collaboration and through wide networks of credible local and international research fellows and associates; Robust informatics, data management and GIS systems; ‘On the ground’ logistical support for research and researchers, and capacity building and technical support within the region and Sustainable resources and funding supported by a commercial, consultancy arm.
