As the Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, the Alfred Wegener Institute works primarily in the cold and temperate regions of the world. Together with numerous national and international partners, we are involved in deciphering the complex processes in the "System Earth". Our planet is undergoing profound climate change. The polar regions and seas are changing. At the same time, they play a central role in the global climate system
