Almost ready to go

Loading research vessel ALKOR at GEOMAR, Kiel, at the start of the KOSMOS 2015 experiment on ocean acidification

The KOSMOS 2015 team is almost ready to go! The mesocoms and the working boat WASSERMANN were loaded on the research vessel ALKOR today. An extra truck will take dozens of boxes with lab equipment, measurement instruments, anchors, buoys and sampling material to Bergen.

Weather forecasters told us that ALKOR might have a rough time on her way around Skagen and up north along the Norwegian coast. You can follow her at Marinetraffic.
