DEEP-SEA FACILITIES

Below is a short overview of the deep-sea facilities currently being built up at IRIS.  All equipment can answer new, unanswered questions related to the effects of oil and gas, aquaculture and mining sectors on the marine environment and be used to test new methods to reduce the environmental foot-print from these industries.
