IMO Starts Project “ExploSub: Science and Technology for Submarine Exploration”

On Tuesday April 10, the first activity “ExploSub: Science and Technology for Submarine Exploration” took place at the Marine Biology Station of the Department of Oceanography at the University of Concepción. In September 2017, the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO) won competitive funding in the 21st National Contest for Projects for the Appreciation and Dissemination of Science held by the Explora project of the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT), which made it possible to carry out ExploSub, a project aiming at bringing marine sciences closer to the school community.

Leading International Publication "Marine Technology Reporter" Covers the Achievements of Atacamex Expedition

In the article "South America Record Setter: a Journey Down to the Atacama Trench ", the prestigious international publication Marine Technology Reporter covered the achievements of the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO) in the Atacamex scientific expedition, during which IMO scietists managed to make the lander "Audacia" (Spanish for audacity), an autonomous unmanned free-fall vehicle, reach a depth of 8,081 meters, which represents a historic milestone for oceanography.
