Research Journey to Underwater Volkanoes

It is one of the most active eruption zones in the world: the Kermadec arc in the Pacific. An international group of scientists, led by Prof. Dr. Andrea Koschinsky, professor of geochemistry at Jacobs University, will now investigate the geochemical and ecological effects of underwater volkanoes in this area. The interdisciplinary research project, in which eight partners are involved, is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research at around € 820,000.
