Wadden Sea World Heritage Summer School 2018
The Wadden Sea World Heritage Summer School is a joint initiative of three research institutes, namely NIOZ, AWI and ICBM, as well as the Waddenacademie.
[18.08. - 31.08.18] Flyer:
Dr. Holger Freund, head of the ICBM research group Geoecology, has been elected chair at the annual general meeting of the German Mellumrat society. The election took place on 10 March at the Dangast National Park House in the village of Dangast, Germany.
Prof. Dr. Oliver Zielinski and Dr. Katharina Pahnke-May, (both ICBM), have been appointed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the German Research Foundation (DFG) as members of the newly established „Review Panel Research Vessels“.

Climate, Krill and Tunicates
Oldenburg. Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bettina Meyer, scientists aboard German research icebreaker „Polarstern“ have recently left for Antarctica. Meyer, who heads the research group „Biodiversity and biological processes in polar oceans“ in a joint professorship of ICBM and Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), in this expedition primarily focuses on the impact of climate change on antarctic krill and so-called salps, gelatinous tunicates.
Eleven students are exploring Indonesian coral reefs up to 9 March, shark encounter included. Under scientific supervision of Prof. Peter Schupp, PhD student Mareen Möller (both ICBM) and Dr. Sebastian Ferse (Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine research ZMT), the students are going to learn to sharpen their scientific focus on reef ecology during two weeks on Bunaken and Bangka island.
Since 2015, the Jacobs Career Fair is being held every year at the international Jacobs University Bremen. And for the third time already ICBM Junior Scientists Coordinator Dr. Ferdinand Esser was present as well. In the Campus Center of Jacobs University, marine science institutions, such as ICBM, AWI, ZMT and MPI, presented themselves, along with established enterprises as well as startups.
During the last glacial period, carbon dioxide has been "locked up" in the deep Southern Ocean. Current findings of scientists from Oldenburg and Bremerhaven, published in the recent issue of Science magazine, point at favourable conditions in the South Pacific. A team around geochemist Katharina Pahnke, who heads the Max Planck Research Group for Marine Isotope Geochemistry at the ICBM, presents evidence that during the last Ice Age the Southern Pacific must have been strongly stratified.
