Kiel Marine Science

Research questions

  • How do climate-driven changes in the ocean (warming, acidification and, in polar regions, sea-ice decline) affect distribution, composition, diversity and ecosystem functions of benthic communities?
  • How do benthos species respond in ecologically relevant functions (e.g. growth, production, metabolism) to mulitple stress factors in their natural environment?
  • How does the pelagic-benthic coupling work, i.e., what relationships exist between benthic ecosystem functions and processes in the overlying water column and sea ice?
