Sargasso Sea: Days 46 – 61

As the Yersin left the first mission in Macaronesia to cross the Atlantic, we welcomed a team from Aix-Marseille Université onboard. This team spent the 20-day transatlantic trip making 18 station stops and covering 6000km to study what is well known as the Sargasso Sea.

The team of 8 documented their time on the Yersin and the work they performed on this site. I encourage you to take a look and read about their part of the Monaco Explorations expedition there.
