In April 2014, the first research expedition has conducted by Magali Ader (IPGP) to the Dziani Dzaha lake to begin characterizing the physical chemistry and biology of the lake at the end of the rainy season. Its scientists performed on-site measurements of the water chemistry and microorganisms metabolic activity.
They also sampled gases, waters at various depths, and procured a 1.8-meter-long sediment core for subsurface biodiversity, chemical, mineralogical, and isotopic analyses.

Members of this first  expedition:

Magali Ader, Professor, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), Expedition Principal Investigator
