22.02.2018 19:22Time to say goodbye and thanks (Sources & Sinks: A Tale of Coastal Biogeochemistry - BONUS COCOA) Dana Hellemann

While much of the research that has been done in BONUS COCOA is still on its way to being published, the project itself finished at the end of last year.

Therefore, it is time to look back on all the cool things / interesting science we have done, the friendships / collaborations we have made, and the aims we have achieved over the past 4 years. Not to forget the time we spent on the water on our mission to better understand the biogeochemistry of the Baltic Sea coastal filter.
