Sample Gathering

The CIEP laboratory has work equipment capable of gathering samples in a column of water and sediment.  For this purpose it has two watercraft (Calafate I and II), CTDO, Niskin bottles, Go-Flo bottles, Van Veen drags, Gravity Corer, amongst others.

Aquaculture Area

The present work is in the implementation of Environmental Reports (“INFAS” or EIRs) and the Preliminary Profiling of Sites (“Caracterización Preliminar de Sitios -- CPS”).
