The Scottish Oceans Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute studying the marine environment which forms a key focus for research excellence in marine-related science. Our research interests range from the deep oceans to the coasts, and from the people who use and interact with the sea, to the biological and physical processes that make the oceans function.

  • Tectonics and crustal evolution 

    Hawkesworth, Chris J.; Cawood, Peter A.; Dhuime, Bruno (2016-09-01) - Journal article
    The continental crust is the archive of Earth's history. Its rock units record events that are heterogeneous in time with distinctive peaks and troughs of ages for igneous crystallization, metamorphism, continental margins, ...
  • MLCut : exploring Multi-Level Cuts in dendrograms for biological data 

    Vogogias, Athanasios; Kennedy, Jessie; Archaumbault, Daniel; Smith, Victoria Anne; Currant, Hannah (Eurographics Association, 2016-09-16) - Conference item
    Choosing a single similarity threshold for cutting dendrograms is not sufficient for performing hierarchical clustering analysis of heterogeneous data sets. In addition, alternative automated or semi-automated methods that ...
  • Atmospheric drying as the main driver of dramatic glacier wastage in the southern Indian Ocean

    The ongoing retreat of glaciers at southern sub-polar latitudes is particularly rapid and widespread. Akin to northern sub-polar latitudes, this retreat is generally assumed to be linked to warming. However, no long-term ...
  • Exposure to the neonicotinoid imidacloprid disrupts sex allocation cue use during superparasitism in the parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis 

    Cook, Nicola; Green, Jade; Shuker, David Michael; Whitehorn, Penelope (2016-09-06) - Journal article
    1. Neonicotinoid insecticides are potent neurotoxins of significant economic importance. However, it is clear that their use can adversely impact beneficial insects in the environment, even at low, sub-lethal doses. 2. It ...
