GEOMAR numbers over 1000 employees covering all aspects of marine science "from the ocean floor to the atmosphere" and a professional administration. It is rare that we all have a chance to get together.

With the "GEOMAR Science Day" we want to change that. Through a mix of presentations, poster sessions, demonstrations and tours we want to showcase GEOMAR science for GEOMAR. The science will be presented in a way accessible to people from across marine science and beyond, allowing all GEOMAR employees an insight into what is happening within our own walls.

You will have a chance to see the ARENA2 in action, visit the new core & rock repository, dive into the world of our TLZ  and have a close look at our underwater vehicles (ROVs and AUVs), and get insight into the wonderful work of our library and data management.

We are planning to have a fun, exciting, engaging and informative mixture of presentations (on the short end), demonstrations, espresso talks, posters and tours. 
Now we need YOU to make it happen!

You find a preliminary agenda below - of course, everything depends on your input and this agenda is by no means final.
