Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP), University of Bremen


The focus of the IUP's work in environmental physics is the investigation of the atmosphere, the cryosphere, and the oceans of the earth. Part of the IUP is the IFE (Institut für Fernerkundung) which was established to handle our longer-term satellite projects.

MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, University of Bremen


The ocean and the sea­floor are home to an ar­ray of pro­cesses that im­pact the en­tire Earth sys­tem. Geo­lo­gical, phys­ical, bio­lo­gical and chem­ical pro­cesses in­ter­act, thus in­flu­en­cing the cli­mate sys­tem and the global car­bon cycle, and give rise to unique bio­lo­gical sys­tems. Un­der­stand­ing these pro­cesses and sys­tems re­quires spe­cially de­signed in­stru­ment­a­tion for their in-depth ex­am­in­a­tion. MAR­UM’s mis­sion is to es­tab­lish and dis­perse fun­da­mental sci­entific know­ledge re­gard­ing the role of the ocean and the sea­floor in the Earth sys­tem, and to provide im­par­tial in­form­a­tion for the be­ne­fit of so­ci­ety. With this fo­cus, MARUM trains fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of ocean ex­perts within an in­ter­na­tional and in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary frame­work, and ex­pands pub­lic aware­ness of the im­port­ance of the mar­ine en­vir­on­ment.
