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
out our feedback form.
The expedition 359 of research vessel Poseidon
Müller, Dr.Thomas J.
The Azores Front with the associated Azores Current forms the northern boundary of the subtropical gyre in the eastern North Atlantic, not only for physical properties but also for plankton species which abundance very much depends on the nitrogen budget.
P359 was a transit cruise for some technical tests, mostly underway systems. While passing mooring site K276 at 33°N, 022°W, a deep CTD cast could be taken to extend the long time series that has been obtained at this site since 1980 outside coastal states EEZ.
