Experimental Facilities ICON

Access to state-of-the-art experimental facilities, such as aquaria and culture facilities that enable the maintenance, culture and experimental work on both micro and macroorganisms from polar to subtropical environments.

CCMAR

  • over 500 m2 of aquaria with different capacities (from 50 L to 9 m3), supported by wet and dry laboratories and climate room

  • Ramalhete Marine Station – an aquaria infrastructure for marine organism maintenance and experimentation that enables tailored experimental setups in a wide range of conditions

  • CO2 mesocosm - a CO2 controlled aquaria system to simulate oceanic acidification scenarios

CIIMAR

  • Bioterium - aquariums/mesocosms ranging from 5L to 600L capacity and two recirculation systems installed with a total volume of 2300L, enabling tailored experimental setups in a wide range of conditions (salt, brackish or freshwater, controlled temperature and photoperiod), supported by wet and dry laboratories and climate rooms

UC -ACOI

  • 52m2 of culture and climate rooms, supported by dry laboratories

IMAR - UAC

  • OceanA-Lab: an in situ natural laboratory using a shallow-water hydrothermal vent field (40-m deep) located in the Faial-Pico channel off the Espalamaca headland. The laboratory consists of a platform of modular structures for long-term studies on the effects of ocean acidification (OA) on benthic communities, accessible through SCUBA diving

  • AquaLab and DeepSeaLab –tanks and aquaria for marine organism maintenance and experimentation that enable tailored experimental setups in a wide range of conditions

  • Temporary storage, treatment and preservation of biological samples (collection storage room, freezers, ultrafreezers)
