Geological sediment sampling for paleoclimate studies. We will also try to recover live and fossil specimens of the mollusc, Arctica islandica, from shallow water areas with the purpose of studying the internal growth banding and its relationship with climate.
Geological and biological sampling equipment (gravity corer, multi-corer, box corer, dredge) site-surveying by 3.5 kHz echo-sounding. Conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) measurements in the water column.
