Coastal Summer School 18-29 September 2018: Coastal dynamics - consequences for coastal protection and ecology

Hiddensee Island, Germany and on board of the RV "Elisabeth Mann Borgese".

Co-organized by Leibniz Institute for Baltic Research Warnemünde, Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers). Supported by University of Greifswald and the project “Coastal research in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea” (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research).

The coastal summer school 2018 will give an interdisciplinary overview from topics related to the geological development of the Baltic Sea and its natural coastal dynamics to coastal protection measures as well as biogeochemical processes and ecological characteristics of coastal habitats. Experienced geologists, engineers, biologists, physical oceanographers and authorities representatives will share their knowledge and teach students by providing state-of-the-art information and hands-on training during two intense weeks at Hiddensee island and on a daily cruise in the Baltic Sea on the research vessel Elisabeth Mann Borgese.

The coastal summer school addresses advanced Master students, PhD students and young postdocs with a background in marine sciences such as geology, oceanography, biology, coastal engineering or coastal zone management.
