Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry
Science is exciting, science is fun! For an entire evening, institutes, laboratories, lecture halls and clinics in Jena open their doors into the night and show guests how versatile and interesting their research is. There is a lot to marvel at, learn and try out for young and old! We will be there again this year with an exciting and interactive program.
For further activities, please visit the German event page.
Deep in the Amazon rainforest stands a measuring tower as tall as the Eiffel Tower. In our foyer you can climb a model of the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory and learn more about the research project in an exhibition by scientists.

Where does the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere come from? What information do we get from analysing the stable isotope ratios in the air? In our BGC-IsoLab, you will not only get the answers but also an insight into a modern mass spectrometry laboratory.
Event: Lab visit Location: BGC IsoLab, meeting point in the entrance hall Time: 07:30 pm Please register via presse@...more
Collecting, preparing and analysing different samples - how does that work and with which methods and instruments? At our information stand, we will show you the path from the sample to the result of the chemical elements you are looking for.
Event: booth and exhibit Location: 1st floor Time: ongoing more
Flux tower stations around the world, in a wide variety of locations from the Arctic to the tropics, provide measurement data on the exchange of carbon dioxide and water between ecosystems. But how can we learn about the carbon and water cycles of the entire biosphere from these individual stations?
Event: booth Location: 1st floor Time: ongoing
Join us and explore some data sets and scientific contributions done by scientists at the institute. Get an up close and personal explanation of what we can learn from data via animations and interactive applications in full colour and high definition. Presented by Jeran Poehls & Lazaro Alonso
Event: Interactive visualization Location: tower C2.011 Time: ongoing
Look through our microscope and discover the diversity of phytoplankton! These single-celled plant organisms use sunlight and carbon dioxide to make photosynthesis in water. Talk to our expert and learn more about these exciting organisms!
