Here you can find publications of DynaDeep. Besides peer-reviewed publications, articles about DynaDeep published in other forms, such as newspaper articles or press releases, are listed.

Furthermore, there are references to peer-reviewed publications of previous projects (e.g., "Barrier Island Mass Effect (BIME)", DFG-Ostplate), which were also conducted on Spiekeroog and are closely related to DynaDeep.
