KOMEX is a joint project of German and Russian scientist representing various earth science disciplines. The area of investigation is the Sea of Okhotsk and the surrounding environment which constitute a climate-controlling ecosystem of global importance, beeing a significant source region for the input of methane into the atmosphere and its water-mass formation as part of the Pacific Ocean.
Data management was carried out at GEOMAR; most of the data were made available via the data library PANGAEA®.
