The Marine Colloquium run seminars and newsletters that bring together research and researchers at the Department. Doctoral Students are a part of this community and are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in the seminars, which can be a great opportunity to meet international experts in marine science.
The stations at Kristineberg and on Tjärnö are two of Europe’s most modern marine laboratories, with unique possibilities to conduct advanced experimental work. The research stations have a large number of laboratories supplied with water from the surface and sea bottom drawn directly from the Gullmar fjord respectively the Koster fjord. In many of them, both air and water temperatures can be controlled along with light levels.
Outdoor experimental facilities consist of a greenhouse and installations for what is known as open-tank experimentation ("ecotrons") with access to a through-flowing supply of both surface and deep water from the fjords.
Both stations have access to minor research vessels and smaller boats.
The large research vessel Skagerak, length 38 metres, is fully equipped for marine research and education in water depth down to 1000 metres. Maximal endurance at sea is 14 days. During longer expeditions Skagerak can take 10 scientists/students, with a crew of 6.
