Research vessels

The laboratory conducts its geophysical and coring expeditions on board several research vessels and infrastructures. Often used research vessels include the R/V Coriolis II, the ice-breaker CCGS Amundsen, the R/V Louis-Edmond-Hamelin, smaller vessels and diverse foreign vessels.

The R/V Coriolis II (Research vessels)

In close collaboration with REFORMAR, the laboratory contributed to the geophysical and coring capabilities of the R/V Coriolis II. The vessel can now deploy box, gravity, piston and multi-corers. The ship can also map the seafloor and its sediments with precision in shallow and deep waters (...)
