organisation profile

The research station in Wilhelmshaven was inaugurated in 1928. The idea was to have a permanent research facility on the coast of the North Sea in order to study modern geological and palaeontological processes and products with the aim of improving interpretations of the rock record. Under the motto “the present is the key to the past”, the principle of actualism was to be applied systematically in the field. In this way, two new research disciplines were created, namely actuogeology and actuopalaeontology. Today, the Marine Science Department consists of five Divisions, comprising Actuopalaeontology, Marine Geology, Marine Sedimentology, Sedimentary Petrography, and Marine Biology. In 2001, the station was expanded by the incorporation of the German Centre for Marine Biodiversity Research (DZMB) which forms a Department of its own
