Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment
Rising water temperatures bear an increasing risk for pathogenic germs in marine environments. The German-French project ENVICOPAS, headed by Gunnar Gerdts (Alfred-Wegener-Institut – Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung, Heligoland site), investigates the impact of climate change on pathogenic marine microorganisms. Also involved is ICBM professor Dr. Ulrike Feudel, as well as further members of her research group Theoretical Physics/Complex Systems. They are working on prediction models for pathogens in marine water.More

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has appointed Dr. Oliver Wurl, head of ICBM Research Group Sea Surfaces, as one of three DFG-representatives for the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR). Being convened in 1957 by the former International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), the interdisciplinary panel promotes international scientific efforts in all fields of marine sciences. National sponsoring bodies, such as DFG, delegate scientists for reviewing the activities supported by SCOR.
