During the oceanographic campaigns, scientists collect samples of fauna, water and sediment that will enable them to study deep-sea ecosystems. They also acquire many hours of video footage that will allow them to observe organisms in their environment, at different spatial and temporal scales.
All the information and data relating to operations at sea, samples and measurements, carried out from ships and submarines, are accessible via the French Oceanographic Cruises website.
The Geological and biological marine sample collection provides direct access to the collection of marine geological and biological samples from offshore missions.
Finally, the videos and images acquired with the underwater vehicles are available on Martine Science Videos.
