On the day of departure for our yearly CDeepSea summer cruise a long list of prominent guests came to visit us onboard the G O Sars. Among the visitors were representatives from the Trond Mohn Foundation, the UiB rectorate, the faculty of mathematics and natural sciences, the head of department from both Biological Sciences and Earth Science as well as the marine dean and marine director. It was a great pleasure to show them around the boat and present our many different research activities. You can read more about the objetives of this year's cruise here (in Norwegian).
