At the North Sea coast…journey of discovery with the Uni-OL Container
In summer 2010 it was not just the fresh maritime air which attracted many people to visit the North Sea coast, also the yellow reconstruction of a mudflat gaging station caused a stir in several coastel-locations. Scientists of the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the sea (ICBM) of the University Oldenburg were already on their way through Wilhelmshaven, Dangast, Hooksiel, Neuharlingersiel and Spiekeroog. Corresponding to their motto “Window to the exploration of the sea”, they gave the interested local coast dwellers and visitors an understanding of the versatile research on the subject of mudflat.
The research work of the ICBM becomes more significant in times of climate change, whereas also the need of education about the biological and chemical processes at the North Sea coast stays in focus of the scientist. This might people to expect long and tiring lectures, but the many-sided technology makes it more vivid like an exciting and interesting journey along the shallow sea coast. A children’s play area with info-blackboards, which are suitable for children, makes sure that children do not have to miss out.
