EMSO-ALBATROSS, from 14th to 16th and from 24th to 26th September 2020
The 2020 maintenance operations for the ALBATROSS oceanographic mooring line were successfully completed by the EMSO Western Ligurian team; usually scheduled during spring time, the activities were this year exceptionally postponed to September as direct consequence of the covid-19 pandemic. The campaign included two phases: a recovery of the line, performed on 14-16th September, and a full re-deployment done ten days later, on 24-26th, after the sensors were carefully cleaned and checked and re-powered at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography and at the Technical Division of INSU (Marseille, La Seyne, France). These procedures are essential to sustain real-time data acquisition at the site, between 500 and 2400m depth.
