Research

 

The oceans play a central role in the earth's climate system. Yet, managament options regarding the marine carbon cycle are rare in the economic analysis of climate change. The research group is concerned with this broad topic as part of the interdisciplinary Kiel Excellence Cluster "Future Ocean" (read more...). The research group is also part of a number of third-party funded projects.
