"Mouse-Team" at ICBM
German famous children’s TV programme „Broadcast with the Mouse“ visited ICBM this week. On a story around marine litter, video shooting took place last wednesday (11.07.) at the Wilhelmshaven site of the institution as well as near Schillig. The programme is expected to be broadcast on German TV ARD in late summer.
On 16 June, Prof. Dr. Joerg-Olaf Wolff and Ph.D. student Rosanna Schoeneich-Argent took part in the awards ceremony of the Barthel Foundation funded competition „Frieslands Helden der Heimat“ (Heroes of the Friesian Homeland) in Varel, Lower Saxony. Their project proposal on information on the issues of marine litter won them the second place in the category „Environmental Protection“. They were awarded with the certificate of the prize, remunerated with 5,000 Euros, by Lower Saxony’s Minister of the Environment Olaf Lies.
Recently, participants of the ICBM excursion to the mediterranean island of Giglio depicted their first impressions in a webblog. The students were accompanied by pleasant anticipation when starting their first snorkel tour, which was the first snorkeling experience to some of them at all. The initially even in wetsuits unexpected cold water did not derogate from scientific impetus.
The 147th RV METEOR expedition led scientists of ICBM, amongst team members of other research facilities, to the Amazon estuary. On whit sunday, 20 May, cruise M 147 will come to its end in Belém, Brazil. What made the estuary of the biggest stream on earth such attractive to the scientists? In his blog, local consultant Clive Maguire also lets us hear some vivid reports of the scientists aboard.

YOUMARES: . . YOUMARES was organised for the first time in 2010 as network meeting for YOUng MArine RESearchers. Within the German Society for Marine Research (DGM) the Working Group on Studies and Education was founded to organise that yearly event. Since 2010 YOUMARES has developed into the largest meeting for young marine scientists in Germany. It is now well-known among young researchers as an excellent platform to present results in a professional atmosphere that, at the same time, still manages to avoid the sometimes overwhelming character of established scientific meetings. The concept is to exchange ideas in an easy-to-talk-to group of similar minds. In other words, it has grown up while remaining young at heart.
