Sunny, breeze, choppy sea, but good for working.

Sixteen nautical miles off the coast of Chipiona, we began with the submarine robot’s first dives at a depth of almost 100 m. Tomorrow we will start the transects to document the bottoms of the area proposed for installing the "Cruces del Mar" marine wind turbine farm. The purpose of this research is to minimize the impact that this type of project could have upon the marine environment. To do so, we must carefully analyze and locate the most suitable area to install it.

During today's dives, in the southernmost part of the area to be studied, toward Rota, we documented both muddy areas and rocks with coral and sea fans.
