It’s been a week now that the LOV team invaded the Stareso station. It took us several days to build the mesocosms and to anchor them in a site located feww hundred meters from the harbor. The divers did a very good job, the 9 mesocosms are now deployed and should be closed by tomorrow. Then we will fix the roofs and the pH regulation can start. We’ll explain in a post how we will acidify the mesocosms.
Concerning the labs, everything has been cleaned and we already installed all our material. Now, we wait for our colleagues to arrive to finish the installation !
A very nice video that our friends Jean-Yves Collet and David Luquet shared with us, can be viewed below:
