Evaluation and Selection of the MEUST Submarine Site


This report summarizes the results of the investiga tions performed to select the MEUST submarine site. Measurement campaigns have been conducted during 2012 on several locations off shore of Toulon. During this period the most distant site has s hown a higher sensitivity to bioluminescence seasonal variations, whereas the more coastal sites had simila r conditions as Antares. This observation combined with logistic constraints leads to select a site located at similar latitude as Antares but more western on the other side of the CC5 telecommunication cable to Cors ica. The route of the MEUST Main Electro-Optical Cable has been defined accordingly, with some flexib ility to allow fine tuning of its end point as function of the outcome of the final site characterizations scheduled in 2013.
