Seismic and volcanic activity in Mayotte: conclusions of the last two cruises MAYOBS3 and MAYOBS4

The last two oceanographic cruises, MAYOBS3 and MAYOBS4, financed as part of a joint knowledge acquisition programme by the "Ministère de la transition écologique et solidaire" and the "Ministère de l’enseignement supérieur, de la recherche et de l’innovation", ended on Wednesday 31 July.

On this occasion, a scientific presentation was held on board the oceanographic vessel Marion Dufresne. This presentation was organized in two stages:

  •  a first stage of exchange between scientists and the various stakeholders in Mayotte (parliamentarians, elected members of the Departmental Council, mayors, experts, members of the pre-selection committee for the attribution of the volcano's name) in the morning;
  • a second stage in the afternoon with a press conference.
