Flanders Marine Institute

Platform for marine research


In the image archive of the website Wetenschatten, four centuries of Belgian coastal and marine research are depicted. The illustrations were unearthed from an impressive amount of scientific publications and documentation relating to this region, which were written over the years by numerous researchers. The Wetenschatten-website is therefore a goldmine of historical illustrations, photographs, maps and plans of the own marine region, and of significant Belgian marine researchers.

The VLIZ picture collection also contains several images of historical marine scientific research in Belgium. The emphasis here is on the more recent 20th century history of the Belgian marine sciences.
