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.
