Working group: Trace Metals
Our long-serving collegue and head of the trace metal working group Mrs. Dr. Christa Pohl (30.12.1955-25.03.2012) passed away after long illness. Dr. Pohl was working at our institute in the department Marine Chemistry since its reestablishment in 1992. After completing the A-levels she finished an apprenticeship as chemical laboratory assistant. Subsequently she studied biology (1980-1987) at the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel and worked in the Marine Chemistry department at the Institute for Marine Sciences. In 1991 she completed her PhD at the University Bremen at AWI. In April 1992 Dr. Pohl joined the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Warnemünde and was responsible for the trace metal analyses in the framework of the Baltic Sea monitoring programme. She participated and contributed to numerous national and international projects and from 1997 was also responsible for in-firm training of apprentices. Dr. Pohl was a passionate, see-going scientist.
We have lost a valued and engaged co-worker, colleague and friend.
