The Dude (seismometer no.11) was deployed by #seaseis. The name was submitted by Dunamase College, Portlaoise, Co. Laois. Even 2,000 metres underwater, the Dude abides. We're very close to Iceland now and you can feel it in the cooler air. #diasdiscovers#diasatsea
The coldest place in Ireland I’m reliably informed is inside this container in the basement of a Georgian building in Dublin City centre - it is 0.03 degrees Kelvin in there or -273 degrees Celsius. It houses a detector to be used by Irish astronomers. pic.twitter.com/QuEaenxZfX
We have now deployed Harry (seismometer no.9) The name comes from 'Harry H Hess' who discovered seafloor spreading (plate techtonics).
Half of the eighteen seismometers have been deployed by #seaseis.
Now heading northwest from Ireland towards Iceland. #diasdiscovers#diasatsea
The 2nd seismometer "Brian" has been successfully deployed by #seaseis. It is named after a former DIAS Senior Professor, Brian Jacob, whose work on the continental nature of basins west of Ireland led to the Irish territory increasing by a factor of 10 #diasdiscovers#diasatsea
