The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) is an interdisciplinary Institute at the University of Oldenburg with locations in Oldenburg and Wilhelmshaven. It is the only university institute in Lower Saxony that covers broad areas of marine sciences, both in research and in teaching. Currently, 14 working groups of various scientific disciplines - including biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering - belong to the institute. ICBM operates the coastal observatory Spiekeroog and is the home institute of the research vessel Sonne.
