Brief Description of Organisation:

The Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) is a marine research institute with a strong focus on coastal ecosystems. Organized within a strategic research agenda, the departments of Physical oceanography, Marine geology, Marine Chemistry and Marine Biology pursue interdisciplinary research in coastal systems, with a special focus on the Baltic Sea. IOW also conducts the German contribution of the HELCOM monitoring obligations on behalf of the BSH.

JERICO-S3: Main tasks attributed under Work Packages:

Situation as of 02.03.2019 to be updated when role in the consortium becomes clearer
Suggested: WP2, Task 2.1, and 2.4 Collaboration of Interoperability IOW has strong link to ICOS, and experience in merging both for additional goals in science (i.e. HELCOM monitoring) and merged education projects with ICOS and IOCCP, in particular through BONUS INTEGRAL. IOW: could also assist with linkage with the international (global pCO2 community, i.e. SOCONET) WP 4 Task 4.2 (1) Contribution to the GoF supersite through instrumentation on VOS Finnmaid.
