The summer school “How to govern marine environment: Baltic Sea and sediment services as a case study“ will give an interdisciplinary overview on topics related to the functioning of marine environments and their possible response to human impacts and their governance.
Experienced scientists from Physical Oceanography, Sedimentology, Biogeochemistry, Marine Biology, Coastal Ecology, Marine Geology, and Economy will share their knowledge and teach students by providing state-of-the-art information and hands-on training during two intense weeks in the town of Lauenburg and on a daily cruise in Lübecker Bight on the RV Elisabeth Mann Borgese.
The summer school, is realized in cooperation of some of the leading national centres for coastal research in Germany: Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Leibniz Institute for Baltic Research Warnemünde, the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers) and the KüNO (Coastal Research in the North Sea and Baltic Sea) umbrella project. They have been organizing a common annual summer school since 2002 in Sylt, Helgoland, Büsum, Lauenburg and Warnemünde.
The school is designed for PhD students and postdocs with a background of Earth Science, Geology, Physical and Chemical Oceanography, Biology or Coastal Engineering. All costs are covered by the organizers. The language of the school is English.
