Barbara Colucci

RSEC Quseir

Eva
Barbara Colucci finished her Master Thesis about "Seasonal Changes in the Systematic Diversity of Plankton in the Strait of Gibraltar" at the University of Basel in April 2009.
Barbara works for the Swiss Organisation "OceanCare" and analyzes the Plankton samples caught in the Mediterranean Sea. The protection of marine mammals and their environment is an important part of her collaboration with "OceanCare".
For the organisation RSEC different lectures will be held about the importance of
plankton in the marine food web.

Robert Pudwill

1.12.2009 -

RSEC Quseir

 

Jessica
Robert has studied biology and geography at the Hannover University and ecology and limnology at the GHS-Essen. He works as a freelance expert in landscape planning for several planning offices and other clients. He is interested in marine ecology and conservation of the reef ecosystem. At the fieldstation in El Quseir, he will be studying the algae growth patterns on the reef flat and the seagrass at selected dive sites.

Eva Immler

8.11.2009 - 15.01.2010

RSEC Quseir

Eva
Eva studies Wildlifemanagement in the Netherlands. She will do a 10 weeks internship at RSEC in which she will assist in all projects. Furthermore she will study the abundance of sea urchins at the house reef of Radisson Hotel.

Soureya Becker

8.10.-24.12.2009

RSEC Quseir

Katrin
Soureya is 22 years old and recently received her bachelor’s degree in general geology in Munich.  She gained field experience related to volcanology during several volcano field trips to Colima in Mexico and to Etna, Vulcano, Lipari and Stromboli in Italy. After these terrestrial experiences she has been on the RV Mbari in the East Pacific, helping in a deep-sea volcanism and biology expedition. She has also worked as research assistant with the CORE (COral Reef Ecology) group in Munich. Now she is looking forward to discover more about reef ecology and environmental protection at the RSEC, experiencing first hand research diving and marine conservation projects.

Daniela Gütter

26.10.2009 - 25.01.2010

RSEC Quseir

Daniela
Daniela studies Geography at the University of Augsburg Germany.
Within the framework of a three-monthly voluntary service she observes dolphins in coastal regions. Furthermore, she is studying the work of the German medic and scientist Dr. C. B. Klunzinger and will be informing the guests of the Radisson Resort about his pioneer work at the El Quseir.

Andreas Scharl

13.7.-14.9. 2009.

RSEC Quseir

Daniela

Andreas, 23 years old, is studying ecology (6th semester) at the University of Salzburg, Austria. His interests range from botany to marine biology, which will be the main topic of interest during his 10 week stay in El Quseir. He is an avid scuba diver and snorkeler with the aim to inform people about the dangers (intensive scuba diving tourism, plastic waste in the sea, climate change and ocean acidification) corals reefs are facing and convincing them they're worthy of our protection.

Other than working at the field station as a volunteer he will use his time in El Quseir to write a bachelor thesis about the cryptobenthic fish communities of the El Quadim Bay. These small fish live hidden lives on the seafloor and between corals and thus receive little attention from hobby scuba divers and scientists alike. It is possible that new species will be discovered and this thesis will lay the groundwork for further scientific studies about the important role these little fish play in the ecosystem of the coral reef.
