The Research Unit Potsdam started operating in 1992. Its main fields of research are terrestrial geoscience in the periglacial regions (at the margins of inland ice sheets and in permafrost areas), as well as experimental investigations and modelling of atmospheric processes in the polar regions. These studies complement the predominantly marine programme of the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven. In particular, polar researchers at Potsdam concentrate on the Arctic - a region key to understanding the climate in Europe.
