Faroe-Shetland Channel & West of Scotland MPA Case Study

The Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems Theme within MASTS funded a Case Study on the Atlantic approaches to the Scottish continental shelf and slope, coordinated by the University of Edinburgh, MSS and JNCC.  The case study included the Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC) region and the West of Scotland possible Marine Protected Area (pMPA). As part of the case study, a workshop of four online sessions was held to review the existing scientific knowledge, identify research gaps and determine how the MASTS community can drive forward research in both geographic areas. Outputs from these will then be summarised in one or more publications.
