More about Institute

CRS Lubiatowo


The S. Hueckel Coastal Research Station was established at the end of the 1960s in the vicinity of Lubiatowo village. The Station activity is aimed at investigations of coastal hydrodynamic and lithodynamic processes. Since 2007, a state of the sea can be observed by the camera installed on the beach more…
