Research platforms


Numerical Simulation

Numerical modelling of marine systems, either directly through simulation, or through the application of results from such simulations to empirical observational research projects, form an indispensable part of the cluster of excellence. …


Molecular Biosciences

The Centre for Molecular Biosciences (CMB) provides high-throughput molecular technology for marine biological projects. …


Ocean Observatories

Current observational capabilities in Kiel provide a strong basis for the Cluster, one which can be matched by only a few institutes throughout the world. The platform includes classical tools (e.g. research vessels, multiple mapping and sampling …


KIMOCC

The Cluster’s Kiel Marine Organism Culture Centre (KIMOCC) provides advanced culturing techniques for experiment  with marine organisms like e.g. deep-sea bivalves, ctenophores, microalgae or cnidaria (pictures on the left by Hiebenthal, …


Research Facilities

The Information and Instrumentation Unit (IIU) is part of the Kiel Academy of Interdisciplinary Marine Sciences (KAIMS) which has been newly established as a roof for marine science and associated fields within CAU and GEOMAR (see CLUSTER CONCEPT). …
