The Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC) is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain. CSIC’s research encompasses all fields of knowledge, with over 15,000 staff, and is structured into 120 research centres. ICM is the largest centre of the five marine research centres belonging to CSIC. ICM’s mission is to study the seas and oceans with an integrated approach, seeking to describe their role and impact on the geophysical and biogeochemical dynamic equilibrium of planet Earth. ICM main research topics are coastal evolution, continental margins, marine subsoil, natural risks, coastal water quality, genomics of organisms, marine species and communities, marine ecosystems, fishery resources and aquaculture, physical-biological interaction processes, biogeochemical fluxes, ocean dynamics, physical-chemical structure of the water column, ocean-atmosphere interaction, climate and global change, garbage and marine pollutants, marine energies and the transition towards a sustainable economy.
