The research vessel moored at Kristineberg

At Kristineberg Marine Research Station the research vessel Alice has been re-equipped and updated. She will be a much needed resource for monitoring, research and education.

Alice was built in the year 2000 for an oceanography project. The scientist Anders Stigebrandt had managed to get a grant from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and honoured the funder through choice of name. Recently Kristineberg took over the vessel and has now completed a comprehensive overhaul.

- We have now obtained a Passenger Ship Safety Certificate which means we can perform physical, chemical and biological sampling along the Swedish west coast, says research engineer Hans Olsson at Kristineberg. Besides a crew of 2 persons we can have up to 8 scientists on board. Of the equipment on board, I want to particularly mention a CTD for salinity and temperature measurements, 6 water samplers and an advanced ADCP for measurements of water currents, says Hans Olsson.

- With this addition to our boats at Kristineberg we have doubled our capacity for sampling and for excursions with students and visitors, says Peter Tiselius, station manager at Kristineberg. Alice is used intensively in plankton monitoring which Kristineberg carries out for the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management since 1985.
