Upcoming cruise : Pourquoi Pas? and SOCIB

We are excited to start our upcoming CALYPSO cruise in the Western Mediterranean on March 26, 2019. We will be using 2 research vessels, the French ship, the Pourquoi Pas? and the Spanish research catamaran, Socib.


These 8 gliders, consisting of 6 Spray and 2 Slocum gliders, will be deployed from the Research Catamaran SOCIB. They will measure salinity, temperature and bio-optical properties in the Western Mediterranean as they dive to several hundred meters and resurface.
