Some of the research projects led by our researchers are carried out with the support of large, medium and small research vessels, which are also used in teaching activities. Learn more about the characteristics and a little about the history of the R/V Atlântico Sul, the Floating Teaching Laboratory Ciências do Mar-I, and the Oceanographic Launch Larus. Besides these vessels, researchers also perform field samplings in shallow areas of the Patos Lagoon Estuary with the support of the Moralles aluminum boat. For more information about these vessels, visit the Antarctic Support Station page.
