GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is one of the leading marine science institutions in Europe. GEOMAR investigates the chemical, physical, biological, and geological processes in the oceans, as well as their interactions with the seafloor and the atmosphere. The core research activities for GEOMAR consist of observational programs toward the ocean's role in the climate system, as well as the interaction between physical, biological and chemical processes, with a special focus on the Atlantic Ocean. The large-scale circulation in all depth ranges of the ocean, the physical processes at the sea surface and the ocean's interior, and their effect on currents, deep water formation and oceanic transport of heat and fresh water, are the focus of our investigations. Since 2016, OTN provided VR2W receivers for deployment on the GEOMAR moorings as platforms of opportunity for acoustic tracking.
