Kiel Marine Science

Workshop on the mapping of the seabed in the North and Baltic Sea with medium-sized research vessels

Mar 07, 2017

 

Alkor

Medium-sized research vessels such as the Kiel-based ships Poseidon or Alkor play a key role in the area-wide mapping of the seabed in the North and Baltic Sea. The scientific institutions of the North German coastal states work closely together in numerous research projects and collect data for the implementation of political processes such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive or the European Water Directive for state and federal authorities and ministries.

The workshop on the use of "medium-sized research vessels" for the mapping of the seabed as well as the North and Baltic Sea will provide researchers and representatives of state and federal agencies, as well as other experts, with an overview of the range of recently completed and current work at the coast and shelf area of the North and Baltic Sea.Hier weiterlesen

The event is organized by Dr. Klaus Schwarzer, Institute of Geosciences at Kiel University within the framework of the research focus Kiel Marine Science (KMS) and is a contribution to the "Coastal Research Network Schleswig-Holstein". Kiel University (CAU) and the three Northern German Helmholtz institutions Alfred Wegener Institute (locations Helgoland and List/Sylt), the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht and the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel have joined forces and cooperate within the network.

Date: Thursday, February 23, 2017
Time: 10:30 am - 15:50 pm
Place: Wissenschaftszentrum, Fraunhoferstraße 13, 24118 Kiel
