AMAZOMIX campaign

27 August 2021 - 8 October 2021


The campaign is organized by the French Institute for Development (IRD), CNRS and CNES in France, Federal Rural University of Pernambuco (UFRPE), Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), Federal University of Pará  (UFPA) and Federal Rural University of the Amazone (UFRA) for Brazil, and benefits from the structuring role of  the International Joint Laboratory (LMI) TAPIOCA (IRD, UFPE, UFRPE). Technical services, research units and  universities are associated to AMAZOMIX, of which: UMR MARBEC (IRD, Ifremer, University of Montpellier,  CNRS), UMR LEGOS (CNES, CNRS, IRD, University Paul Sabatier), UMR LEMAR (UBO, CNRS, IRD, Ifremer),  DT-INSU (CNRS), US IMAGO (IRD), UMR LOG (CNRS, IRD, University of Lille, ULCO), UMR MIO (University of  Aix-Marseille, University of Toulon, IRD, CNRS), Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ, Brazil), the National  Brazilian Institute for Spatial research (INPE, Brazil) and the University of Porto (Portugal). The Rockland  Scientific firm is also participating in the campaign as an industrial organization. The ship will make two halts in Cayenne on September 13th-14th and from 28th to 30th, and a stop in Porto  Vigia, near Belém on September 26th to unload biological samples. At sea, around August 30th, AMAZOMIX  will meet the schooner TARA in its tour of Latin America and the Caribbean, for the purpose of scientific  collaboration: a common protocol will allow both teams to compare their data and thus increase the spatial  and temporal coverage and the quantity of samples collected.

The result of a long-standing Franco-Brazilian cooperation  

In addition to the scientists on board, AMAZOMIX includes a whole team that will remain on land: a total of  about 70 Brazilian, French and other countries’ researchers are involved in the campaign, which will also  have a research training role for about 50 international students. AMAZOMIX is the result of a long-standing  federative work based on numerous funded projects, including the TRIALTAS European project and  articulated through the LMI TAPIOCA (IRD, UFPE, UFRPE). It should also be emphasized that the analysis  of the data collected will be carried out jointly by the different partners and that the findings will be pooled.
