The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment is a part of University of Oldenburg is one of the marine science institutes at the German coast and the only university based marine research organization at Lower Saxony, Germany. The ICBM is located on the campus Wechloy in Oldenburg. The ICBM controls the Wadden Sea time series station Spiekeroog (WSS) and several research containers. Interdisciplinary research institute, dealing with fundamental and applied issues in marine and environmental research. The ICBM aims at understanding the value of marine environmental systems through close collaboration of the numerous scientific disciplines in chemistry, biology, physics, and modeling of its research groups. The research focuses on marine energy fluxes and biogeochemical cycles in the water and sediment and at the boundary layers between habitats and water masses as well as the functional role of marine biodiversity. Especially in coastal zones worldwide and in the oceans. The mathematic modeling of different environmental systems is complemented by high resolution analytics, modern and in house marine sensor growths. The institute is self-possessed of 3 sections covers altogether 18 research groups. â¢ Section Geochemistry and Analytics â¢ Section Physics and Modeling â¢ Section Biology and Ecology Courses are closely related to the research activities to provide interdisciplinary and research-oriented training. The institute offers a broad bachelor programme with subjects of marine, landscape-ecological sciences and environmental as well as four Master Programmes. â¢ Marine Environmental Sciences, â¢ Microbiology (held in English), â¢ Environmental Modeling and â¢ Marine Sensors. In assistance with the ICBM, the Jade University of Applied Sciences offers a Bachelor Programme which is fundamental for marine engineering. The ICBM is ERASMUS exchange partner for students. The ICBM collaborates with the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology and MARUM, both located in Bremen, with the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, along with the Senckenberg Institute in Wilhelmshaven. The ICBM is a member of the German Marine Research Consortium (KDM) and of the Northwest Marine Research Association (NWMV).
