numerical modeling of regional and coastal circulation, surface waves, sediment 
transport, biogeochemistry, data assimilation and remote sensing. Together with 
seven other Helmholtz Institutes, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht takes part in 
the Advanced Earth System Modelling Capacity (ESM) project, a major coordinated 
effort towards a modular Earth System modeling, data assimilation and analysis
