Research vessel cruises

Cruises on research vessels

During my studies of oceanography at the Institute of Oceanography at the University of Hamburg and thereafer during my work at GEOMAR in Kiel, I participate on several cruises on board of research vessels. These pages will give a short and incomplete overview over the cruises and the scientific background of each as far as I remember.

Pictures from my cruises:
