Online - Seminar MarTREC

Marine Technology, Research and Experiences in Coastal waters


The AWI Center for Scientific Diving collaborates with many national and international colleagues and institutions on various projects in coastal research. For this, the expertise of different disciplines such as engineering, environmental science and scientific diving is essential.

We aim to bring this knowledge together in our new online CSD seminar. Each seminar will feature a short (20-30 minute) presentation on a specific project being conducted at or in collaboration with AWI-CSD.

The seminar is held once per month every 2nd Thursday at 11:00 hours. You can join the seminar for free in our virtual meeting room (Passcode 62PdS33wmEF)
