Some new wooden boats have been launched

Here is a special news dedicated to the latest campaign of our partners from AZTI.

North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre

During the RADPROF campaign of the IEO, carried out in August, 120 wooden boats have been launched in the waters of the Galicia Bank and in the open waters of the North Atlantic (~ 43º N, 15.40º W). The objective is to study the possible trajectories of marine litter towards the Portuguese coast, its intrusion into the Mediterranean or its drift following the North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre.

We let you discover them and send us pictures!
