DynAMo - Beagle Channel Observatory on the dynamic impact of ice mass loss in the Andes on terrestrial, limnic and marine ecosystems.

Within this infrastructure project scientists and marine engineers from Germany, Argentina, Chile and the USA are collaborating to develop a concept for a marine-terrestrial observation network within and along the Beagle Channel and its adjacent regions of the Andes mountain chain (Cordillera Darwin). The first proof-of-concept buoy Observation system was established in 2018. Progress and plans for the Long-term development of the Observation System were discussed at a Workshop in Bremerhaven in May 2019.
