‘Missing Ice Problem’ finally solved

To date computer models have been unable to reconcile sea-level height with the thickness of the glaciers - until now.


Sweet marine particles resist hungry bacteria

A sugar in algae resists rapid microbial degradation. With this finding researchers show that this sugar can potentially act as an important carbon sink.

Expedition SO273 "Marion Rise"

The video material shown here was recorded with the ROV MARUM-QUEST in the Indian Ocean during the expedition SO273 “Marion Rise”.

The Project "Marion Rise" is an international cooperation between Germany, USA, and China. The expedition was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany) and the National Science Foundation (USA).

The cruise SO273 was abandoned after 10 days station work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
