The team behind meereisportal.de

The information and data portal meereisportal.de was launched in 2013 in order to provide, for the first time, a central German-language source of scientific findings on the topic of sea ice for all levels of society and in various levels of detail. The platform’s three main pillars are background information on changes in the amount of sea ice and their causes; information from and for experts; and an extensive cartographic and data archive. It’s primary goal: to foster fruitful exchanges between the scientific community and society, so as to support and advance the public debate on climate change.

But who’s actually behind meereisportal.de?

Here you’ll find out who’s at work behind the scenes at meereisportal.de, i.e., which researchers are contributing their expertise on various aspects of sea ice. After all, one thing is crystal clear: without these valued contributors, meereisportal.de simply couldn’t work! Their knowledge, hard work and commitment are what allow us to prepare the latest data and report on the latest developments regarding sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic.

As such, in the following, you’re warmly invited to get to know us better:
