Christening of the "Louis EUZET", the new boat for the Mediterranean Coastal Environment Station in Sète

Friday, October 6, starting at 11 a.m, OREME and the University of Montpellier will inaugurate the second boat of the Mediterranean Coastal Environment Station (SMEL), christened "Louis Euzet". The inauguration will take place in Sète, in the presence of Philippe Augé, President of the University of Montpellier, Eric Servat, Director of the University of Montpellier's OSU OREME, and Sébastien Mas, Director of SMEL.

By invitation only

The acquisition of this boat has been a priority for OREME and SMEL for several years. The project became a necessity following the increase in requests received for local and national research projects and services. The characteristics of the "Louis Euzet" will enable the station to extend its range of activities at sea.

OREME's objectives

Attached to the University of Montpellier, the Observatoire de Recherche Montpellierrain de l'Environnement (OREME) is dedicated to the long-term observation of climate change and human activities in order to better understand their effects on the environment and the planet. OREME is notably present at the Mediterranean coastal environment station in Sète, which conducts studies at sea and on the Thau lagoon. Its researchers are observing the effects of climate change on marine biodiversity, notably through species monitoring and in situ experiments.
