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; the German Research Fleet Coordination Centre for METEOR, MARIA S. MERIAN and SONNE; and the individual operators for POSEIDON, ALKOR, HEINCKE, and ELISABETH MANN BORGESE. It is also possible for operating times to be exchanged between the individual vessels in order to optimize operations.
