Cruise Planning

Cruise Planning

The operational planning of approved cruises for the different vessels is the responsibility of various bodies: the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) in the Helmholtz Association for POLARSTERN and HEINCKE; the German Research Fleet Coordination Centre for METEOR, MARIA S. MERIAN and SONNE; the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel for POSEIDON and ALKOR; and the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) for ELISABETH MANN BORGESE. It is also possible for operating times to be exchanged between the individual vessels in order to optimize operations.
