PROTEKER 4 (18 nov. 2015 – 23 dec. 2015 in the field) is the first summer campaign of Proteker phase 2. The setting up of the Kerguelen’s underwater observatory being achieved (thermorecorders at 5 and 15 m deep and colonization plates at 10 m deep were set up at 8 sites during Proteker phase 1), the campaign first consisted in collecting and changing the thermorecorders and plates at 5 of the 8 reference sites (unfortunately, the 3 remaining sites could no be accessed). The campaign then focused on specific projects of habitat mapping, genetic and ecological analyses for a better characterizing of nearshore habitats. .
