A trial mesocosm that included all the new modifications and improvements was deployed today in order to make a final check of the mesocosm construction and procedures.
This mesocosm is 4 meter high and has a volume of 1,6 m³.
The trial included sea water filling of the mesocosm and deployment to the bottom of the mesocosm of a special container filled with sediment collected in the same day from the Heraklion port. Also a sediment trap adjusted to the needs of a mesocosm experiment was tested.
Later on the same day a new sediment sampler, designed to collect sediment from the mesocosms was tested successfully.
