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.
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 meeting was held at the HCMR and brought the major partners of the Mesocosm Experiments together.
The division of the work was discussed and specific tasks were given to every team member participating in this WP.
It was decided the experimental procedure followed based on the hypotheses to be tested.
