The HYPOXIA mesocosm experiment will start next week. So these days the team has to make the final preparations in order everything everything to be ready for the filling of the mesocosms next Monday.

Today we cleaned the tanks that will be used to carry the sea water to the mesocosm facility. This procedure inlcudes initial acid-wash of every tank followed by washing with distilled water.

Because the tanks are bulky they have to be washed outside and at least three people are needed to wash a tank.

At least the weather was cloudy and so we didn’t suffer from the heat.
