IRM1Core Facility ‐ Infrastructure for Marine Research (IRM) deals with the logistics of sea operations, sampling and environmental analyzes. It manages two coastal vessIRM2els (M/N Vettoria and Hippocampus) equipped with oceanographic instruments for measuring environmental variables and for sampling. It provides for the management and maintenance of fixed research infrastructures (buoys, elastic beacon, multi-parameter seabed platform, mooring) and other advanced oceanographic instruments. The Unit collects material used for research (samples, data, etc.). It carries out material collection activities, visual census and underwater instrumentation maintenance, with the help of Underwater Technical Operators (OTS). The technological and research development is aimed at the implementation of new techniques and observational procedures and at the management and analysis of the data produced by advanced oceanographic instruments.
