We’re now sampling in the coastal zone of the Black Sea and are getting closer and closer to land. And there is life here in the surface sediment! Adrian is our expert: he knows exactly what species of worms and shells are present at each location.
This is also the region where Rob is deploying a lander daily with help from Ruud and Wytze.
A lander is a large frame with equipment that can be left on the seafloor and that can perform measurements independently there. We’ve even left it on the seafloor for a whole night.
