FINMARI provides access to several research vessels operating normally in offshore or coastal northern Baltic Sea: RV Aranda, Aurelia, Geomari and Augusta. In addition, the hovercraft Saga allows all-year-round sampling in archipelago areas regardless of ice conditions. Each vessel has its characteristic domain of operation and capacity in terms of personnel and instrumentation, with their specific strengths and limitations. Please assess the detailed descriptions from the menu at left.
In addition, two multi-purpose icebreakers are available for research campaigns in demanding offshore/arctic conditions, requiring negotiations with the shipping company well in advance.
