Red Sea / Oman

In 1999, the joint research Cruise M44-3 with R/V Meteor was carried out by the Department of Geosciences in Bremen (GeoB) and several other partners.

Subsequently, two PhD projects were carried out. Mohamed Salem from MTU studied seismic and acoustic data in the vicinity of Wadis in the Gulf of Aqaba.  Axel Ehrhardt from Hamburg University
