Last 2 weeks

Here (Villefranche sur Mer) we are at 2 weeks from leaving to Corsica, the other participants will join us around the 17th of June to start the experiment!! We have to build the nine mesocoms and prepare the laboratories before everyone arrives.

From June 4th to 19th the LOV team has to: install the anchors (the mesocosms are fixed to the seabed), build the nine mesocoms (insert the armatures around the bag, prepare the roofs, buoys,…), deploy the mesocosms on site (just in front of the Stareso station) and manipulate the carbonate chemistry (we’ll explain later how we do it). So many things to do but it will be nice moment!!

Pictures of the mesocosms and the Stareso station will come soon!

  1. Hello from HCMR,
    First of all, I would like to wish you all the best with the set up (anchors, roofs, buoys, etc.).
    Can’t wait to join you and looking forward for the pictures from the preparation days (as I will miss them).
    One quick question regarding the location.Having read the site of Stareso station, isn’t there a bus that would connect Calvi with Stareso?? Do you know?

    Can’t wait…I would like to learn how you will manipulate the carbonate chemistry when everything will be ready.
    Following you closely.

    Kind regards
    Louisa
