Using and protecting our blue planet starts with understanding our changing seas.
Van 5 tot 20 december organiseren het NIOZ en WMR een expeditie met de Pelagia naar de Sababank. Experts hopen meer kennis op te doen over de zinkgaten en de recent ontdekte honderden vreemdsoortige kalkalgen torentjes.
On 29 November 2019 at 16.00, Prof. dr. Linda A. Amaral Zettler, Special Chair Marine Microbiology at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics, University of Amsterdam will hold her inaugural speech.
After last year's failed attempt to recover scientific instruments from the deepest place on the planet (Mariana Trench), a team of NIOZ-National Marine Facilities succeeded this time with specially designed tools.
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.
