Mesocosms at ECIMAT-UVIGO
On-site access, Toralla Marine Science Station - Vigo University Marine Research Centre (Spain)
Experimental facilities
Description :

Large-scale land-based and sea-based floating mesocosms in a nutrient-rich upwelling area

Expertise :

Mesocosms facilities floating platforms for in situ studies (2m3 bags) as well as land-based facilities (cylindrical tanks, 1m3), with benthic and pelagic tanks. All these facilities allow the experimentation with large seawater volumes in close-to-natural conditions. A 40m2 isotherm chamber is also available for mesocosms research in controlled temperature conditions, as well as microcosms tanks and a laboratory in the mescosmos area.
