Finland

InstituteÅbo Akademi University, Turku
Local tutors: Professor Dr. Erik Bonsdorff, Dr. Patrik Kraufvelin
Participation: projects IV, VII, IX, X, XI

Last update: June 2017

Turku (Åbo in Swedish), founded in the 13th century, is the oldest and fifth largest city in Finland. About 85 miles away, halfway to Helsinki, GAME experiments take place at the Tvärminne Zoological Station, near the most southern point of the Finnish shore line. Due to the low salinity in this part of the Baltic many marine organisms are absent, which makes for relatively species-poor aufwuchs-communities. Tvärminne is an ideal site for the study of ecological problems of brackish sea-water systems.

InstituteAlfred-Wegener-Institut für Meeres- und Polarforschung, Helgoland/Bremerhaven
Local tutor: Dr. Markus Molis
Participation: projects III, VI

Biologische Anstalt Helgoland / Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. Although GAME does not send students to the island of Heligoland directly, the Biologische Anstalt, which is represented by Dr Markus Molis, regularly participates in GAME projects. AWI students, who are on the island anyway, perform those modular experiments which belong to the respective research topics; this way they complete our network with an important site. Heligoland provides the only off shore research opportunity in the German Bight which features a considerable tidal range and at the same time is reachable from land.

Hong Kong

Institute: SWIMS (Swire Institute of Marine Science, einem Institut der Universität von Hongkong), Hong Kong
Local tutor: Dr. Clement Dumont
Participation: GAME VIII, IX

Last update: June 2017


The SWIMS is located at the very remote south-easterly tip of the island of Hongkong in a marine protected area. The ocean around Hong Kong is subtropic but experiences some distinctive features. Winters come along with low temperatures and high salinities, summers with high temperatures and low salinities. West of Hong Kong the water is dominated by inflow from the Paerl River that causes strong turbation, changes in salinity and high pollutant loads - especially during rain season.

India

 

Institute: National Institute of Oceanography, Goa
Local tutor: Dr. Chandrashekar A. Anil
Participation: GAME VI, VII

Last update: June 2017


The National Institute of Oceanography in Dona Paula, Goa, is one of the biggest research facilities in India, with currently about 200 scientist working here. The institute has the most comprehensive library in the field of marine sciences on the subcontinent. Within the GAME network Goa represents one of the tropical sites. The climate in this part of India is strongly characterized by the monsoon, which also has manifold impacts on the organisms living in the shallow coastal waters. GAME participants in Goa are tutored by Dr. Chandrashekar A. Anil.

Indonesia

 

Institute: Bogor Agricultural University, Bogor
Local tutor: Dr. Neviaty Putri Zamani
Participation: projects VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV

Last update: June 2017

The city of Bogor is located on the west side of the Indonesian island of Java only about 60 kilometres away from the capital Jakarta. Currently it is inhabited by 750 000 people, but over time it and Jakarta, together with two other cities, is gradually coalescing into a single big urban conglomeration. Although Bogor University lies away from the shore, it is possible to do marine biological research in its laboratory facilities; additionally, there’s a field station on an island north of Java.

Institute: Shahid Beheshti University, Teheran
Local tutor: Dr. Behroz Abtahi
Participation: GAME VII

Last update: June 2017


Shahid Beheshti University Teheran / Queshm Marine Station. Until now, alongside the Persian Gulf marine areas relatively little ecological research has been done. Especially, ecological knowledge concerning the coastal regions is sparse. Mediated by the Shahid Beheshti University in Teheran, GAME participants are given the opportunity to do their biological research work at the Queshm Marine Station on Queshm Island in the Persian Gulf. This surely is one of the more unusual and at the same time most interesting sites within the GAME network. Students are tutored by Dr. Behroz Abtahi.

Italy

 

Institute: Universita di Pisa, Pisa
Local tutor: Professor Dr. Lisandro Benedetti-Cecchi
Participation: GAME II

Last update: June 2017


Since Pisa itself isn’t a coastal city, the experiments were carried out in Livorno on the Ligurian Sea, where port facilities provided shelter against an often rough sea. Both Pisa and Livorno are cities in the Tuscany region of Italy.

Japan

  1. Institute: Universität von Tohoku, Sendai
    Local tutor: Professor Dr. Jotaro Urabe
    Participation: projects  III

    The city of Sendai is the located in the north eastern part (the Tohoku region) of Japan’s largest island Honshu, about 350 km away from Tokyo. The experiments were carried out on an island near the coast.

  2. Institute: Universität von Chiba, Chiba
    Local tutor: Professor Dr. Masahiro Nakaoka
    Participation: projects  V

    Chiba is situated south east of Tokyo on the Pacific Ocean. Experimental activities take place at two separate locations in the inner part of the Tokyo Bay.

  3. Institute: University of Hokkaido, Akkeshi
    Local tutor: Professor Dr. Masahiro Nakaoka
    Participation: projects  VII, VIII, IX, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV                                                       Last update: June 2017


    University of Hokkaido - Akkeshi Marine Station. On Japan’s second largest island, GAME teams work at the marine biological station in Akkeshi, a site belonging to the University of Hokkaido in Sapporo. Akkeshi is situated on Hokkaido’s east coast, on a coastal strip characterized by impressive high cliffs and rocky shores. Here, in a little bay and about 5 km away from the city (which is renowned for its oyster farming) the station can be found. Akkeshi is an optimally qualified site for marine research due to its straightforward access to the sea, an uninterrupted supply of sea water in the laboratories, and the overall superb infrastructure. GAME teams are tutored by Dr Masahiro Nakaoka.
  • Deployment of samples during the 2004/2005 GAME project.
  • Keyaki (i.e. Japanese elm tree) Assembly Hall on the Chiba University campus.
  • The Akkeshi Marine Station is situated on the sea front of the Gulf of Akkeshi.
