Field practice is a compulsory part of POMOR curriculum; it usually takes place between the 2nd and the 3d term. We try to enable the student to participate in international expeditions to the Arctic or to get an internship at well-respected Russian and German research organizations.
Field practice takes from 2 up to 6 weeks and is supervised by researchers from POMOR partner universities and organizations.
After finishing their field practice, students are supposed to submit a written practice report and to present their results during the POMOR student conference that usually takes place in December at GEOMAR in Kiel.
Field practice 2020
The field practice season 2020 could not take place in the common way because of the pandemic. Students completed their practice online, the fewest of them could participate in expeditions and excursions carried out by Saint Petersburg State University, Lomonosov Moscow State University and Hamburg University. Six students completed a lab practice at the Otto Schmidt Laboratory.
We plan to organize a field practice (marine and terrestrial) supervised by Prof. Eva-Maria Pfeiffer and Dr. Heidi Kassens in March 2021 in Germany.
