PhD student Camilla Sani at sea to sample Doldrum FZ

XXXV series PhD students Camilla Sani is sailing, together with her supervisor Alessio Sanfilippo, with the Russian ship Akademik Nikolay Strakhov.

The aim of the cruise is to study the evolution of a large-offset transform offsetting the equatorial Mid Atlantic Ridge (MAR), i.e. the Doldrums Transform (7-8°N). Sani’s PhD is focused on  on the geochemical variability of mantle peridotites collected during this particular cruise.
