More than forty other oceanographers are involved under the leadership of Prof. Burkard Baschek, Institute Director of the Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG). In addition to various HZG groups, the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Warnemünde (IOW), the University of Lübeck, the FH Aachen, the Havariekommando Cuxhaven, the FU Berlin and the Alfred Wegener Institute Bremerhaven are also participants in the project.
