Calculating the future of cod in the Barents Sea

Together with a Norwegian team of scientists, coastal researchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht have developed a statistical procedure that can help predict future cod stocks in the Barents Sea. This new method could sustainably improve cod fishery management on longer time scales and has now been published in the journal PLoS ONE. more

Research into offshore wind power: Where the wind blows

Using satellite radar images, scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) are investigating how wind turbines in the German Bight are modifying the wind conditions in the surrounding area. Radar technology has shown these effects up to 70 kilometres behind the installations. Results that may be significant for the optimal siting and operation of future plants. more

Institute Institute of Coastal Research
Location Geesthacht

Das Institut für Küstenforschung untersucht die natürliche physikalische und biogeochemische Dynamik der Küstengewässer, berechnet Szenarien für die Klimaveränderung und betrachtet die Ergebnisse im sozio-ökonomischen Zusammenhang. Ein Schwerpunkt ist das Küstenbeobachtungssystem COSYNA (Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas), mit dem die Nordsee, Ostsee und die arktischen Küstengewässer systematisch beobachtet und modelliert werden.

Die Abteilung In-situ Messsysteme befasst sich mit der kontinuierlichen Beobachtung von Wasserqualitätsparametern mit FerryBox Systemen sowie Unterwasserknoten. In der Abteilung Radar Hydrographie werden unter Verwendung von In-situ- und Fernerkundungstechniken die Dynamik der Meeresoberfläche sowie die oberflächennahen Prozesse untersucht.

Für die Vorbereitung und Durchführung von Experimenten sowie Entwicklung und technische Betreuung von unseren Messgeräten suchen wir in der Abteilung In-situ Messsysteme sowie in der Abteilung Radar Hydrographie schnellstmöglich - zunächst befristet auf zwei Jahre - jeweils einen Diplom-Ingenieur (FH) (m/w/d) oder Master/Bachelor (m/w/d) mit Fachrichtung Mechatronik, Elektrotechnik, oder Messtechnik.

Administration Administration
Location Geesthacht

The Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht hosts a number of highly motivated and experienced researchers in the broad field of coastal research. Our research focus lies on numerical modelling of the coastal ocean with specific expertise in the coupling of different oceanic and atmospheric processes At the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht we develop numerical models with the aim to determine the past and current state of the environment and to identify the major drivers for future changes in the system. The position is initially limited for three years (starting as soon as possible). more

ESKP (Earth System Knowledge Platform) is the knowledge platform of the Research Field "Earth and Environment" of the Helmholtz Association and is supported by eight Helmholtz Centres.

The website eskp.de/en vividly conveys knowledge on the central topics of natural hazards, climate change, pollutants and the effects of the energy turnaround on the environment in the form of scientific articles, interviews, video clips, science GIFs, information graphics and more. The range of expertise in the Research Area Earth and Environment allows complex topics to be examined from different perspectives and to be presented as a whole.
