Sediment analysis and sonar system demonstration
In this workshop, students will be trained in the Marine Geology Laboratory in the method of determining the composition of the seabed sediments on which a variety of organisms live and on which cables, pipelines, platforms, etc. are placed. They will also be trained in the macroscopic description of sediment cores collected from the seabed that record the modern history of the seabed. Finally, they will get a first insight into the sonar systems and underwater guided vehicles (R.O.V.) used for seabed mapping and visual inspection.
The workshop will be held for schools at Aegean University.
