Oranmore based Marine Institute to host European science expedition
The Marine Institute in Oranmore is to host a first of its kind science expedition.
The expedition brings together more than 150 research teams from over 70 institutions in 29 European countries.
It aims to explore the interactions between the land and sea, in order to better understand how these ecosystems interact.
