MarDATA | Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science

Logo MardataDie

Marine sciences are challenged by the drastic in­­­crease in data streams from various sources. The traditional domains need to gather and develop information & data science tools to effectively utilize this amount of data, and to form improved insights to the processes of marine systems and their changes in a warming climate.

The “Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science” (MarDATA) is a graduate school, finances by the Helmholtz Association. It aims to define and educate a new type of “marine data scientists” by introducing and embedding researchers from computer sciences and mathematics into ocean sciences, covering a broad range from supercomputing and modelling, (bio)informatics, robotics, to statistics and big data methodologies. The department's working groups Algorithmic Optimal Control - CO2 Uptake of the Ocean, Archaeoinformatics - Data Science, Multimedia Information Processing, Software Engineering und Web Science are involved in various sub-projects.
