Mainz University contributes to recent discovery of the temple of Poseidon located at the Kleidi site near Samikon in Greece
Natural Hazard Research and Geoarchaeology team of JGU is investigating coastal developments in Western Greece over the last 11,600 years The ancient Greek historian Strabo referred to the presence of an important shrine located on the west coast of the Peloponnese some 2,000 years ago. Remains of such an Archaic temple have now been uncovered at the Kleidi site near Samikon, which presumably once formed part of the sanctuary of Poseidon.

Worldwide assessment of protected areas
Worldwide assessment of protected areas
Protected areas are among the most effective tools for preserving biodiversity. However, new protected areas are often created without considering existing ones. This can lead to an overrepresentation of the biophysical characteristics, such as temperature or topography, that define a certain area. A research group at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now assessed a global analysis of the scope of protection of various biophysical conditions.
