We as the Alfred Wegener Institute want to solve scientific issues in order to be able to better assess which role iron plays in the ocean system. We explicitly neither plan to nor want to smooth the way for a commercial use of iron fertilisation with our expedition. Based on current knowledge, the Alfred Wegener Institute opposes large-scale iron fertilisation with the aim to reduce CO2 to regulate the climate. (Prof. Dr. Karin Lochte, Director of the Alfred Wegener Institute)
