First research cruise on R/V Shelf

In the summer of 2006 a first geophysical and hydrographical survey was carried out in the Bornholm Basin in the framework of the MERCW project.

The marine survey consisted of two legs: a first leg (12.07-17.07) dedicated to magnetometric investigations, and a second leg (18.07-29.07) dedicated to acoustic investigations. Hydrographic measurements and sediment sampling were performed throughout the two legs.

The first results are presented in a public Cruise summary.
