The station has two dedicated guest laboratories with basic microscopesn (stereo/binocular), scales, freshwater and seawater supplies, refrigerators, drying ovens and a fume hood.
In addition to the basic facilities outlined above, visiting scientists that are directly collaborating with an AWI Sylt researcher have access to
- the nutrient analysis (e.g. autoanalyserm C/N analyser, muffle furnaces, spectrometers, salinometers)
- micro- and molecular biology laboratories (e.g. clean bench, shaking incubator, PCR, real-time PCR, and QIAxcel capillary electrophoresis)
- temperature-constant rooms equipped with CO2 supply
- outdoor mesocosms comprising twelve 1800 l replicate tanks capable of simulting ocean warming and acidification under various tidal conditions.
List is the home harbour of the AWI`s state-of-the-art research vessel MYA II that can be hired for short research cruises to take pelagic or benthic samples. The MYA II is additionally equipped with a wet lab, IT desk for data uploading, Ferrybox, ADCP (acoustic doppler current profile), BIOSONIC (biomass echo sounder), and a multi beam echosounder.
