NAMMU OBS ready for deployment

  • UPFLOW deployed 50 highly Ocean Bottom Seismometers on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean (in the Azores-Madeira-Canary Islands region) in the summer of 2021. It is hoped that this will fill a gap in our understanding of powerful movements deep within Earth’s interior. 7 of iMARL NAMMU OBS’s were deployed for this project. These are due to be retrieved in the summer of 2022.
  • Florian Le Pape, DIAS Research Scientist, with the help of another of DIAS Research Scientists, Clara Gomez Garcia will be deploying 3 NAMMU OBS’s on the seafloor near the Porcupine Basin in the Summer of 2022. They will be on board the Celtic Explorer for the SPeeD cruise (Sediment Plume Sampling, Bedrock Drilling & Coral Surveying) with University College Cork Prof. Andy Wheeler
