DescriptionThe Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM), University of Oldenburg,(Germany), will organise a summer school dealing with (micro)biology, chemistry, and physics of the southern North Sea coast and the Wadden Sea, one of the largest tidal systems world-wide and UNESCO World Heritage since 2009. The interdisciplinary scientific programme has a focus on the water column and comprises excursions, sampling, lab work using up-to-date analytical instrumentation, and lectures concerning different topics of coastal research. Main scientific topics include: introduction to the coastal area of the southern North Sea and Wadden Sea research; plankton ecology; microbiology and proteomics; nutrient, trace metal, and isotope geochemistry; sea surface microlayer; hydrodynamics and modelling; excursions by research boats, car, and on foot (tidal flats, ecology, landscape history and climate, and regional culture). The fee is 120 Euro and includes accommodation in ICBM guest house, meals, local transport, and course materials. Travel grants are available to non-German participants according to DAAD regulations.
