Malaspina 2010, the biggest ever expedition on global change, sets sail
Date:12/15/2010

This release is available in Spanish.

The first of the ships sailing on the Malaspina 2010 expedition, the Hesprides, will set out from Cdiz on Tuesday 15th November. The expedition is a multidisciplinary project led by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) which aims to gauge the impact of global change on the ocean and study its biodiversity.

The send off, which will take place at 11 a.m. on the east quay of the Port of Cdiz, will be attended by the Minister for Science and Innovation, Cristina Garmendia, and the Minister of Defence, Carme Chacn. The event will also be attended by the president of the CSIC, CSIC, Rafael Rodrigo, the project coordinator and CSIC researcher, Carlos Duarte, the captain of the Hesprides, Juan Antonio Aguilar, and the president of the Fundacin Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, Francisco Gonzlez.

"This expedition will not only circumnavigate the globe, but also breathe new life into Spanish oceanography by combining efforts and generating a new culture of cooperation." It is an ambitious project on a global scale, which aims to meet two important needs: to assess the impact of global change on the ocean and explore the as yet unknown ecosystem of the deep ocean," Duarte highlighted.

The Hesprides will be joined in January next year by the Sarmiento de Gamboa. Together they will spend a cumulative total of around 9 months at sea and cover some 33,000 nautical miles (one nautical mile is equal to just over 1.8 kilometres). The lion's share of this distance will be covered by the Hesprides, which will sail a route from Cdiz, taking in Ro de Janeiro, Cape Town, Perth, Sidney, Auckland, Honolulu, Panam and Cartagena de Indias, ending next July in Cartagena (Spain). For its part, the Sarmiento de Gamboa will cross the Atlantic from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Santo Domingo. During their stopovers i
