New Dr. in COCOA!

COCOA PhD student Ines Bartl (Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemuende) successfully defended her doctoral thesis on

"Nitrogen transformation processes in coastal zones of the Baltic Sea - On the turnover, regulation and role of coastal nitrification"

....and hence is from now on Dr. Bartl!
Picture credit: Ines Bartl.

During her PhD, supervised by Maren Voss, Ines sailed both stormy and calm waters of the southern and northern Baltic Sea and spent hours, days and nights in cold rooms, spiking water samples from the benthic boundary layer with nitrogen tracer, followed by filtering, filtering and...filtering. 


All the hard work was totally worth it: big congratulations to your great achievement!!
