Mesocosm Experiment D15: what happens during water sampling

Water column sampling is not nearly as tricky as sediment sampling (no minicorers or physical strength required). That’s why we all rotate for it, experimental day by experimental day. Today is Maria’s, Santi’s and Eryfilli’s turn who will collect samples from the surface and bottom water column. But first they have to wait for the nutrient team and the O2 team to collect their samples. Sediment traps are sampled too, right after the water column sampling.

Τhe trickiest part of the sampling is now: we have to transfer the samples to the labs quickly and safely but at the same time keep them cool and in the dark. Luckily, the labs are only one minute away from the mesocosms. The different teams will, now, collect their subsamples and begin their work.
