The RRS Discovery, one of the world’s most sophisticated research ships, was berthed at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal from 4-7 October 2016, forming part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) “Into the Blue” showcase.
In conjunction with the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), higher level members of Mersey Maritime were invited to join us for an exclusive tour of the vessel to see hands-on science taking place, as well as viewing the amazing technology from the British National Marine Facilities Equipment Pool which is used on a regular basis by the NOC and many other organisations to deliver world class marine science.
Tours operated at 15 minute intervals at 11:15, 11:30; 14:00; 14:15; 14:30 and included a light lunch with the Master, members of the crew and some of the world’s leading marine scientists in the ship’s mess.
