Welcome to the home of  BOPP (Bristol Oceans Past and Present), an oceanography based research group at the University of Bristol, UK.

BOPP’s main focus is to further understand the chemical and physical conditions of the oceans, both past and present. Our study of the oceans is made possible through the use of a diverse range of geochemical techniques applied to geological, biological and oceanographic samples.

On this site you can find information regarding our main research interests, our publications and details of research cruises. In addition, the site provides links to examples of our outreach work, as well as details of opportunities to study or work with BOPP in Bristol.
