The Group will work by electronic-correspondence and by holding meetings (perhaps including webinars).
Foci for its activities will include:-
Collecting and publicizing biographies of UK Marine scientists. (including oral histories)
Researching the origins of present-day scientific understanding.
The rescue, documentation and exploitation of historical data that is of value to present day research.
Documenting the histories of major scientific expeditions, projects and experiments.

Documenting the histories and achievements of laboratories and university departments involved in marine science.
The preservation of important documents, photographs and equipment.
