Purpose
To detect and track the impact of large-scale environmental changes in the transition zone between the northern North Atlantic and the central Arctic Ocean, and to determine experimentally the factors controlling deep-sea biodiversity, the German Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz-Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) established the deepsea, long-term observatory HAUSGARTEN, representing the first, and by now only, open-ocean, time-series station in a polar region.
