Coral Garden. Madeira Wine Rally video.

Coral Garden discovered

Almirante Gago CoutinhoThe Journal reports that the hydrographic ship, Almirante Gago Coutinho, has now completed its mission in Madeira, where it has been working in collaboration with the Madeira Ocean Observatory since the end of June. During this period, and after 1,840 nautical miles covered and more than 715 hours at sea, the ship discovered a coral garden to the south of the island.
The mission was initially dedicated to operations using a remotely operated vehicle to investigate an extension to the Continental Shelf, which enabled the discovery of the coral garden in the area off Ribeira Brava. In a second phase, the activity mainly involved conducting oceanographic surveys to study the atmosphere-ocean interaction on the south coast of Madeira.

Various musical events throughout are detailed on the local authority’s Facebook site

The app which was launched at the start of this month is proving very popular, but for those who missed it, it is repeated here, with a link in the sidebar to the app itself.
