The Movie: Die Wirbeljagd


Our oceans and large currents are influenced by the energy of countless small water eddies. Similar to clockwork gears, these eddies are interlocked and affect global climate, the occurrence of algal blooms and fish migration.

Coastal researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht study these virtually unexplored eddies and present their research in the unique cross-media “Clockwork Ocean” project. With a zeppelin, research vessels and a lot of equipment the scientists started the expedition "Clockwork Ocean" in 2016. During the expedition, their research was filmed and a film for planetariums was produced. This film can bee seen at the COP 23.
