What is presented?

Millions of tonnes of all kinds of munitions were dumped into the seas after both World Wars. In addition to the risk of detonation (fisheries, offshore activities, wind farms), toxic chemicals leaching from munition vessels causes them to enter the marine food chain, thus affecting human health.

What is special?

In the BMBF project UDEMM we work together with GEOMAR in Kiel and IOW. For the timely initiation of salvage measures, monitoring strategies urgently need to be developed in order to permanently monitor the munitions dumping areas for the release of pollutants.

What are the potentials?

The national project networks with international projects: DAIMON (Baltic Sea) and Interreg NorthSea Wrecks (North Sea) with institutions from BE, DK, SW, PL, NO, LT, FI as well as with the JPI-O and NATO initiatives. In addition, SMEs are to be involved, e.g. the Kiel-based company EGEOS.
