News from ICBM
During her summer trip, Gabriele Heinen-Kljajic, the Minister of Science in Lower Saxony, stopped over at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) in Wilhelmshaven. One highlight of the visit was a tour with the research boat “Otzum” in the Jade Bay. Prof. Dr. Jörg-Olaf Wolff (right) presented the new project “Macroplastics” which investigates the distribution of plastic waste in the North Sea and will develop avoidance strategies.
In a festive ceremony Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rullkötter presented his chronicle about the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) of the University of Oldenburg to the public for the first time. In this book, the former director of the ICBM describes the institute’s way from a “cuckoo's egg to lighthouse – marine research at the University of Oldenburg”. The book, published by Isensee-Verlag, shall put a smile on the readers’ face, said Rullkötter while presenting the book to numerous guests, among them the publisher Florian Isensee, ICBM director Prof. Dr. Bernd Blasius and the deputy head of the university press office Volker Sandmann.
