Research Vessel Excursion

All year around there are possibilities for school classes to book a research vessel excursion from the Lovén Centre Tjärnö, with or without subsequent laboratory studies. Maximum group size is 20 persons.

Research Vessel Excursion

Excursion with research vessel Nereus can consist of various moment.

Participants discover stratification through measurements of salinity and temperature at different depths. With a Secchi disc participants also measure turbidity of the water, which is a rough measure of the plankton density. The group can also use water samplers and collect phyto- or zooplankton with different plankton nets. With bottom grab or dredge we collect algae and animals from the bottom.

Activity length is 2 hours or longer.

Subsequent laboratory studies

The research vessel excursion can be combined with further studies of collected organisms. This is done in the laboratory, using stereo microscopes and identfication literature.

Activity length is 1,5 hours or longer.
