Department Maritime Systems

Maritime Systems – A New Interdisciplinary Approach of Rostock University

Frank C. Hansen

Scientific Secretary of the Department Maritime Systems

Faculty of Interdisciplinary Research, Rostock University

Klaipeda, 15 May 2009


Faculty of interdisciplinary research 3 departments l.jpg
Faculty of Interdisciplinary Research: 3 Departments:

  • D1: Science and Technology of Life, Light & Matter

  • D2: Maritime Systems

  • D3: Aging Science and Humanities


Slide3 l.jpg

In 2007, the Department Maritime Systems was founded at the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Research in order to concentrate the maritime research at the University of Rostock.

This department deals with coastal seas, the coasts themselves, and landside coastal areas.

Slide5 l.jpg

Coastal zones in global and regional change

Sustainable development and management

Use of maritime systems

Research Areas

Interdisciplinary responses to complex research requirements:


Slide6 l.jpg

Coastal Zones in Global and Regional Change

Challenges:

changes and trends in coastal ecosystems, caused by climate change and increased use, and their effects on social developments in coastal areas

Topics:

changes in hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics, changes in cycles of matter and changes in biodiversity

Aims:

to determine the causes and consequences of these changes and to predict scenarios for expected change in order to provide a theoretical basis for rational policy decisions



Slide8 l.jpg

Use of Maritime Systems – Technical Engineering

Challenges:

intensification of human use regarding resources, energy, traffic, tourism puts an increasing pressure on coastal areas

Topics:

experimental investigations and modeling of hydrodynamic processes and fluid-structure interactions, the construction of large-scale structures such as offshore wind farms, innovations in shipbuilding, conception of coastal defense measures

Aims:

to develop environmentally sound technical solutions for variousfields of maritime economy


Slide9 l.jpg

Use of Maritime Systems

Hydrodynamic characteristics of harbor seal vibrissae


Slide10 l.jpg

Use of Maritime Systems – Aquaculture

Challenges:

the increasing demand of aquatic resources for nutritition and pharmacy,

the decline of fish stocks due to overfishing and climate change

Topics:

culture of micro- and macroalgae, biotechnology of algae, population and feeding ecology of coastal fish, genetics of commercial fish

Aims:

to develop innovative strategies for resource sensitive methods for aquaculture and sustainable fisheries


Slide11 l.jpg

Use of Maritime Systems – Aquaculture

Artificial reef Nienhagen

4 ha in-situ laboratory

  • Interdisciplinary studies:

  • fisheries

  • culture of macroalgae

  • ecology of hard substrate communities

  • maritime technologies

  • economical effects of artificial reefs


Slide12 l.jpg

Production of biomass

closed photobioreactors in temperate climates

Use of microalgae

aquaculture, nutritition, cosmetics, pharmacy, CO2 fixation, energy, environmental monitoring

Yields per ha and year

Colza: 3-4 t

Soya: 6-7 t

Corn: 7-18 t

Microalgae: 30-150 (550) t

Use of Maritime Systems – Aquaculture

Aquaculture of microalgae and cyanobacteria


Slide13 l.jpg

Sustainable Development and Management

Challenges:

increasing and competing demands for use of the coastal zone cause conflicts between different economic interests and the need for environmental protection

Topics:

the manifold interests for use are regarded in their ecological, economical, political, ethical and social contexts, important tools are the integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) and marine spatial planning

Aims:

to develop holistic strategies for conservation of the natural and economic potential of coastal zones within an interdisciplinary framework
