The data portal offers an integrative "one-stop-stop" framework for coherent discovery, visualization,
download and dissemination of scientific information originating from nationally operated research
platforms and monitoring facilities (vessels, observatories, alert systems). The content offered
originates from distinct content providers by German marine research institutions
(see the About page) ranging from cruise-related
metadata to reports, publications, data (archived and near real time) and data products.
The portal is based on open technologies and access is freely available for scientists, funding
agencies and the public (no registration is required).
While we have many intensive efforts to provide well harmonized content, there is still much work to be
done, in particular under "more services". Please help us improving our services and content by filling

The expedition 203-1 of research vessel Heincke
Physical, chemical, biological resarch and fishery oceanographyThe cruise was conducted within the framework of GLOBEC Germany "Trophic interactions between zooplankton and fish under the influence of physical processes". Investigations were carried out in the German Bight, North Sea. Research was performed on all trophic levels incl. phyto-, zoo- and ichthyoplankton as well as pelagic clupeid and gadoid fish fry. Major goals were the description of abundance, biomass, production and nutritional condition of phyto-, zoo- and ichthyoplankton. Concurrently hydrographic measurements were performed incl. continous vertically resolved recordings and the amount of nutrients in the water column was recorded.
