A team led by chief scientist Nicole Dubilier studies deep-sea hot springs on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge called hydrothermal vents. The submersible vehicle MARUM-QUEST is with them on board the research vessel METEOR. A video blog gives insights into the work and life on board the research vessel.
A day in April was dedicated to young people to provide them with information on job perspectives. Eighth graders from the Oberschule Schaumburger Straße visited MARUM to learn about different jobs in the field of marine sciences. Technical options were the focus of pupils from the Oberschule Sebaldsbrück. They tested their own submersibles in the diving tank.
From March 27th until April 4th MARUM scientists are on expedition onboard the research vessel SONNE off the coast of New Zealand to study submarine landslides. They want to retrieve samples from the seafloor with the sea floor drill rig MeBo200. In a ship`s log they report on the life and work onboard a research vessel.
