  • Central Data Management for the DAM Research Mission "Marine Carbon Sinks in Decarbonization Pathways" (in short: "CDRmare") of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
  • Coordination of processes in the CDRmare Data Management to support and ensure the FAIR handling of the research data as well as FAIR data publication
  • Creation of a uniform Data Policy for the Research Mission and a template for Data Management Plans for common use in the individual joint projects
  • Close collaboration with the data managers of all joint projects and consultation with the DAM management
  • Obtaining and forwarding of open workshop offers on the topic of "Research Data Management" and "Data Science"


Previous activities at IOW:

  • Ocean model assessment concerning hydrographic conditions, mean circulation, current velocities and volume transports of the entire Baltic Sea and through transects
  • Comparison of model simulations with observations using validation datasets, mooring and ADCP measurements
  • Investigation of the variability and sensitivity of the overturning circulation in the Baltic Sea
  • Coordinated experiments aiming at an assessment of the performance of different regional climate models in the Baltic Sea within the Baltic Sea Model Intercomparison Project (BMIP; focus on hydrographic conditions, mean and overturning circulation, selected processes like salt water inflows, mixed layer depth, ice formation and upwelling events)
  • Analysis of ensemble simulations (nutrient loads and pools, hypoxic area)
