organisation profile

IOW is dedicated to the promotion of science, research and education in the field of oceanography. Furthermore, interdisciplinary marine research shall be carried out with a special inclination to the Baltic Sea ecosystem. This means explicitly that interdisciplinary approaches are required and that the Baltic Sea research carried out should be of higher relevance than regional studies. The range of tasks comprises also the national commitments to monitor the state of the Baltic Sea (HELCOM), a task which the IOW was charged by the Federal Agency of Hydrography (BSH). Baltic Sea research and the monitoring programme are of mutual benefit building an important corner stone of the IOW work. The data centre is responsible for the processing and storage of data gathered during expeditions and in the laboratories, as well as for the support of scientists with respect to all activities of data management. It continues the management of all data of the previous Institute of Marine Research of the Academy of Science of the DDR.
