When the North Sea's circulation is reversedPersistent easterly winds in spring 2018 reversed the circulation in the North Sea for more than a month, a study conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Oldenburg and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht shows. The team is led by oceanographer Prof. Dr. Emil Stanev.
Founded in 2001 the Institute of Coastal Research has three main divisions: "Biogeochemistry in Coastal Seas", "Operational Systems" and "System Analysis and Modelling". Research is focused on coastal processes including interaction between land, sea and human being. The common aim of the scientists is the assessment for current and future changes in coastal areas. Thus creating a scientific basis for a sustainable and forward-looking coastal management.
