Protecting and using our blue planet responsibly starts with understanding our changing seas.
NIEUWS | Philippart gaat onderzoek doen naar de oorzaken van de wereldwijde verschillen in productiviteit van mariene kustgebieden en de gevoeligheid van deze productiviteit voor ontwikkelingen zoals klimaatverandering.
BLOG | One very long Antarctic summer day as there is 24 hours of daylight here this time of year. Looking back, we are proud of what we achieved: A good coverage of the Amundsen polynya and work at 5 five stations more than originally planned.
EVENT | The loss of heat from the open ocean to the cold atmosphere in Antarctica can enormously enhance rates of ice production. Postdoctoral researcher Célia J. Sapart (ULB) is working on the role of land and sea ice on the methane budget.
Our science is conducted in four scientific departments;. Three of them are area oriented: estuaries and delta areas, coastal seas and open oceans. Marine Microbiology and Biogeochemistry conducts science in all three area types.
NIOZ performs maritime research in seas and oceans around the world. Our focus is on six key areas, including the home bases of our institute, the Wadden Sea and the Dutch Delta.
An important part of the NIOZ mission is valorisation of our research efforts – what we like to call frontier-applied research. Successful examples include projects around ballast water, seaweed, tidal energy and deep-sea mining.
