The Land-Ocean Interaction Study was a NERC research programme designed to study processes in the coastal zone. The Shelf Edge Study (SES) was the part of the LOIS project designed to study the processes happening in the slope region where the continental shelf and oceanic systems interact.

Fieldwork was carried out on the Hebridean Slope between March 1995 and September 1996. A wide range of physical, chemical and biological parameters was measured from moorings, drifters, cores and shipboard operations. Further details can be found in the LOIS SES CDROM brochure.

BODC assembled over 95% of the data sets collected during SES. The quality controlled data were published on CDROM, together with extensive data documentation and interface software (BODC’s Database Explorer, Underway Explorer and Moorings Explorer).

The LOIS SES CDROM was published in May 1999.
