Metal-Geochemistry meets Machine Learning

On October 10th, RV Maria S. Merian will embark on its 96th mission: to study the heterogeneity and complexity of topography, habitats and geochemistry of the Atlantic Ocean seafloor. We expect to find a diverse world, far more complex than what is often thought of when looking at the “Abyssal Plains”.

A team of 12 young scientists aims to map the ocean floor, image it in detail and sample it with the aid of data management, processing and analysis capabilities that are new to marine research.

Our planned cruise track and working areas will be available here:
