ASSEM: Array of sensors for long term seabed monitoring of geohazards

From 2002-01-01 to 2004-12-31

Total cost: 3.11M€ (EU contribution: 1.92M€)

Coordination: IFREMER


The project consisted in developing the means to measure and remotely monitor a set of geotechnical, geodesic and chemical parameters distributed on a seabed area, over an extended time period: The means was studied and realised to deploy a selection of adapted sensors on a seabed area (up to 1 km², 4000 m max water depth) and transmit their data to shore for exploitation. The system was implemented during ten months in the Corinth rift.
