The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) is an interdisciplinary research institute, dealing with fundamental and applied issues in marine and environmental research. The ICBM aims at understanding the value of marine environmental systems through close cooperation of the various scientific disciplines (chemistry, biology, physics, modelling) of its research groups.
