Deciphering the ocean of opportunities: Paleoclimate Modeler Birgit Schneider

Birgit Schneider is a professor for Paleoclimate Modeling at Kiel University. In her group, they are using numerical climate models (ocean, atmosphere, sea-ice) in combination with ocean biogeochemical models, which simulate the cycling of elements (e.g. carbon, nutrients, oxygen) in the water column. They are addressing questions of past, present and future climate variability and […]

Dies ist bereits der 11. Tag unserer Forschungsreise in die Nordsee. Hier wollen wir die Chemie der Wassersäule sowie die Biogeochemie und Ökologie des Meeresbodens an einem Ort untersuchen, an dem wir im nächsten Jahr experimentell Kohlendioxid unter dem Meeresboden freisetzen werden. Kohlendioxid experminentell freisetzen — das klingt nach einem merkwürdigen wissenschaftlichen Ziel. Aber es […]

Sharing the caring: marine biologist Helen Orav-Kotta

What is the nature of your work? I am a marine biologist, a benthologist and the centre of my research area is the northern communities, plants, animals, and everything connected with them in marine environments. Since in nature everything is interconnected, I have had the change to study sediments, chemistry, plankton communities and also fish. […]
