Digital Visit to the Research Vessel SONNE

Nov 16, 2021
Ocean Decade Laboratory: A Floating Classroom - What does our research contribute to a clean ocean?

Waste, chemicals, noise, overfishing and climate change are taking their toll on the oceans. Even the deep sea, the largest habitat on our planet, is now under threat. The United Nations (UN) has therefore declared the "UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development" until 2030 and named seven goals under the motto "The Science We Need for the Ocean We Want." One of the goals is a clean ocean.

The event, "A Floating Classroom: What does our research contribute to a clean ocean?" on Thursday, Nov. 18, will allow those interested to digitally board the research vessel SONNE and talk with researchers. The event will start at around 4:30 pm.

Cooperation partners are MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen, GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the University of Hamburg. The conversation is made possible by an infrastructure set up specifically for the transmission of underwater images and for the participation of researchers on land via satellite through the collaboration between Reederei Briese, MARUM and Senckenberg.

The digital encounter will be streamed live (in German) and can be followed both on site at the museum in Frankfurt/Main and digitally at https://www.senckenberg.de/de/athome/sgn-live/floating-classroom/.

It is part of the Clean Ocean Laboratory, which will be held November 17 to 18, 2021. More info is available here.
