…provides access to various services for research data collection, archiving and publication of the marine research in Kiel and is provided by the GEOMAR data management team (contact us). The portal offers document exchange, common or individual blogs and fora and integrates internal and external webservices and -pages. Moreover it provides access to several project's collaboration sites with personal login.

The infrastructure covers the period from data acquisition to publication, or 10 years (DFG-Richtlinie), respectively. The longterm archiving of research data will be achieved by publication in suitable world data centers, allowing the synthesis with external data.

The data management at GEOMAR supports researchers in the technical and organizational implementation of GEOMAR's research data policy with consulting and established data management systems for the entire lifecycle of research data.


"Open Access" Research Data 



  • KDMI Geo-Search: Search cruise tracks, print publications, sampling locations, glider tracks, sample descriptions and detailed cruise information as georeferenced information in GoogleEarth. 

  • Boknis Eck Database: The Boknis Eck Time Series Station is located at the entrance of the Eckernförde Bay (54°31.2' N, 10°02.5' E) in the southwestern Baltic Sea.

Registered users can access the database (biogeochemical data).

  • OceanRep GEOMAR: OceanRep is an open access digital collection containing the research output of GEOMAR staff and students. Included are journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, theses and more, - with fulltext, if available. OceanRep is managed by the GEOMAR Library and technical supported by the Data Management Team.
  • Marine Data Portal: The Marine Data Portal is developed by scientists for scientists in order to facilitate FAIR research data management to publish, visualize, browse and access research data from interdisciplinary research collaborations as well as individual research initiatives.

    “We promote the sustainable use of the coasts, seas and oceans through research, data management and digitalisation, infrastructure and transfer.” – MISSION STATEMENT OF THE DAM
