The infrastructure necessary for the integration of land-based scientists is the result of a cooperation between MARUM in Bremen and GEOMAR in Kiel, funded by the ministry for research (BMBF). The transmissions for this expedition are distributed and made available to researchers and the general public via the hardware and software infrastructure set up at MARUM.
The dives can be followed live online.
The cruise is led by Saskia Brix from Senckenberg am Meer (Wilhelmshaven). On board is the remotely operated vehicle ROV Kiel 6000 from GEOMAR.
