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 the GEOMAR in Kiel and the IOW. Boskalis Hirdes, the University of Leipzig and ICT Fraunhofer are represented in the parallel BMWi project RoBEMM. Both projects thus network research and industry.

What are the potentials?

In the future, these national projects will be networked 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 research initiatives within JPI-O and NATO. In addition, we work closely with MELUND (SH Germany).
