Experiment shows: microplastics aggregate with natural particles - new publication in the international journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
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
The marine Geoportal coastMap offers a wide range of scientific data and information about the North Sea for experts as well as for interested public. more
For the first time, the UK and Germany have joined forces to investigate the impact of climate change on the Arctic Ocean. more
About 130 Earth system scientists from 14 countries and different scientific disciplines will meet for the 2nd Baltic Earth Conference in mid-June in Helsingør, Denmark, to discuss past, current and future environmental transitions which the Baltic Sea region will face in the future. more
Plants and their leaves are believed to play a key role in intercepting human-made emissions of harmful mercury - according to a new study in the journal Nature Geoscience, in which scientists from the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht (HZG) are involved. more
On March 16th, more than 60 regional actors met for the Elbe-North Sea Supersite Workshop in Hamburg to discuss future research projects. more

Wave dynamics are yet to be truly understood because their movement is so rapid and complex. Physicist Marc Buckley from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht now utilises a watertight laser system to, in a sense, freeze the movement of waves to discover how wind energy is transformed into wave motion. From the results, he hopes to gain important insights into how hurricanes are formed and uncover information that can be used to optimise mathematical climate models. more
