Research Titles

The Green Blue's database of research papers covers a comprehensive range of subjects and approaches, but we are also aware of certain gaps in the information relating to boating and its interactions with the environment. We have therefore identified a list of titles to fill these gaps and we are keen to hear from you if are able to help us provide information, perhaps from a piece of research you have either completed or plan to do.
