The marine geology and geophysics department includes 3 senior researchers and 3 research assistants and specialists. The department maps the seafloor and sub-bottom and conducts studies on sedimentological processes along the coast to deep sea continuum including sediment fluxes, transport, accumulation, and geochemical interactions with the water column. In addition, members of our department operate the various geophysical instruments on the Bat-Galim research vessel and facilitate its navigation and the positioning of launched and deployed instruments as well as collect and analyze remote-sensing data.
