Dipl.-Biol. Carlo van Bernem
Marine ecologist at the Institute for Coastal Research of the GKSS Research Centre in Geesthacht. His specialty fields are Wadden Sea ecology and coastal zone management. One of the focal points of his research is oil pollution in marine ecosystems. > web
Dr. Justus van Beusekom
Marine biologist at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) in List/Sylt. Dr. van Beusekom’s scientific focus is on coastal ecology. He investigates the biogeochemistry and biodiversity of coastal areas in the face of global or regional change, coastal systems under global or regional pressure, and the integration of observations for the purposes of coastal management. > web
Prof. Dr. Martin Visbeck
Physical oceanographer, Deputy Director of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel and chairmen of the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Visbeck’s research focus is on ocean circulation and climate dynamics mostly in the Atlantic. He is also a member of numerous international working groups, the German Research Foundation’s (DFG) Senate Commission on Oceanography, and the National Committee on Global Change Research. > web
Prof. Dr. Martin Wahl
Marine biologist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Prof. Wahl investigates benthic communities in terms of their interrelationships and their interactions with the environment. His main interests are in the areas of biodiversity and global change, stress ecology, and direct and indirect interactions in ecosystems. He also studies defence strategies of marine organisms against consumption and epibiontic colonization. > web
Prof. Dr. Klaus Wallmann
Geochemist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Prof. Wallmann’s focal interests are marine gas hydrates and their formation and stability, as well as cold seeps and mud volcanoes on the seabed. He also investigates microbial degradation of sedimentary organic matter and the recycling of nutrients into the ocean. > web
Dr. Florian Weinberger
Marine biologist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. The focus of Dr. Weinberger’s work is on macroalgal defence regulation and innate immunity and macroalgal invasion ecology. He also investigates the interactions between invasive macroalgae and native biocoenoses. > web
