The Kohnen Station is a German polar research station in the Antarctic. It is named after Heinz Kohnen, who for a long time was head of the logistics department of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI). The station was built in 2001 on the Queen Maud Land (Norwegian: Dronning Maud Land) from the containers of the former Filchner station, which had to be rescued in 1999. It lies at 75 ° 00'S, 00 ° 04'O at 2892 meters altitude, about 757 km southeast of the Neumayer station. The Kohnen Station serves as a logistic basis for the ice drilling in Queen Maud Land of the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica (EPICA). It is a European deep drilling project to reconstruct the climate of the Antarctic Atlantic Ocean sector during the last hundreds of thousands of years.
