AQUACOSM

The International Network Connects Large Marine and Freshwater Experimental Research Infrastructures

AQUACOSM is an integrated, international network of experimental infrastructures of 21 marine and freshwater research institutes. The goal of this networking is a better coordination of future research projects, joint developing of best practices and opening of the mesocosms of both fresh water and marine research institutes for international, interdisciplinary cooperation. The diverse infrastructures offer the opportunity to study the effects of stressors in different climatic and geographic zones of Europe, ranging from the Arctic to the Mediterranean, from alpine mountains to flat coastal regions.

Also part of the network is the LakeLab in Stechlinsee, which can set a new benchmark in experimental fresh water research due to its unique dimension (24 mesocosms with 1,270 m3 each).
