This year Katharina Bachmann received one of the two Otto Krümmel Awards endowed with 1,500 EURO for her bachelor´s thesis "Gas emission sites at the continental margin of Romania", which she completed in 2018 at the department 5 and MARUM.

With the Otto Krümmel Award, the Society for the Promotion of the GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel supports and motivates young marine science students who hold their first professional qualification in their hands with a bachelor´s degree.

As part of her marine geological bachelor thesis, Katharina Bachmann evaluated hydro-acoustic data from Meteor cruise M142 to the Romanian continental margin of the Black Sea and carried out an analysis of the gas emissions and their interaction with sediment structures.

MARUM and the department 5 are pleased about the award to Katharina Bachmann and wish her continued success and joy in her master studies on "Climate Resreach", which she is currently completing at Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
