A life-size floating university

The aim of creating a floating university on board the Marion Dufresne, a legendary ship on its 237th oceanographic mission, was to offer students from various oceanographic research disciplines (chemistry, biology, marine ecology and conservation sciences) a life-size scientific experience: close to the researchers, benefiting from their respective expertise and being accompanied on a daily basis in this experience at sea. During the 35-day campaign, the students had the opportunity to join the various teams on board and participate in the work, sampling and analysis in the laboratory, as well as in the visual observations of birds and marine mammals.
