MOVE 2014

The conference was held at Ifremer in Brest (France) in the 'salon de l'océan' on November 24-27, 2014.

The conference was organized by Ifremer Deep-Sea Lab.

jointly with Ocean Networks Canada, with the support of Institut Carnot Ifremer-Edrome, Labex Mer and FIXO3 (Fixed-Point Open Ocean Observatoires)


Innovations in ocean technologies allowed the development of a new generation of ocean observing systems. The EMSO-Açores (EMSO-ESONET) and NEPTUNE (Ocean Networks Canada) observatories, located on the Mid-Atlantic and the Juan de Fuca ridges respectively, are the first deep-sea platforms with a link to land to be deployed on hydrothermal vents. Both observatories have been operating since 2010 and acquired a large amount of different types of data (scalar, acoustic, optical) across a wide range of disciplines.

The next big challenge is to integrate these data to reach a comprehensive understanding of hydrothermal ecosystems dynamics and functioning. This international workshop brought together researchers from various disciplines in order to share results and engage future collaborations.
