AMERIGO: a lander for biogeochemical studies of marine benthic systems

Nellarticolo viene descritto il lander bentico AMERIGO utilizzato nelle attivit oceanografiche finalizzate allo studio dei processi biogeochimici allinterfaccia sedimento-acqua.

Amerigo is an autonomous and automatic lander for the measurement of parameters and biogeochemical processes near the bottom, at the water-sediment interface and in the first centimeters of the sediment.AMERIGO is able to operate in depths varying from transition environments to the continental shelf and to abysmal ambient.It is able to reach the bottom and back up, without the use of cables, up to 6000 m depth.

The lander is normally equipped with a stable instrumentation as a CTD, for the measurement of the chemical-physical parameters (temperature, conductivity and pressure) during the descent, the time length of stay at the bottom and the ascent, and one or more Niskin bottles.Depending on the needs of the research and business environments, other instruments can be added to these standard equipment.
