EUROFLEETS CWC-Moira funded cruise is now completed 22/10/2012
The cruise on-board of the R/V Belgica (1-8 June 2012) had the purpose to bring new insight on the initial nucleation of cold water carbonate mounds, their transition from open reef framework towards mounds and about the role of the full spectrum of Biosphere actors in these processes as well as in their fossil counterparts.
The region selected for the RV Belgica cruise was the Eastern slope of the Porcupine Seabight, off Ireland, outside the Irish Special Areas of Conservation where small-scale mounded features occur in the Belgica Mound Province (The Moira Mounds).
You can access some of the results of the cruise in the Fribourg newspaper article (FR only)
