Ocean Seafloor Structures and Dynamics

The Kiel summer school focuses on the processes forming and modifying seafloor structures, the time-scales over which such processes act, and variations in their intensity in time and space. The importance of seafloor structures for marine environmental protection and their potential for a range of non-biological resources is assessed. The summer school incorporates practical exercises, as well as real-life examples.


To date, two Kiel summer schools have been completed.
