Life deep in the seabed proceeds very slowly. A team of scientists from Aarhus University (Denmark) and the University of Rhode Island has developed a new method for measuring this slow life deep down in the seabed. Their findings were published last week in the journal Nature.Continue reading "Life Deep Below the Seabed"
A party of seven GSO researchers, led by Dr. Steven D’Hondt, collected a record 800 water samples squeezed from deep sea sediments on a recent cruise in the Pacific. This cruise, aboard the RV Knorr, sailed 13,500 km from Costa Rica to Honolulu in January and collected cores to build a global model for biomass and respiration under the seafloor.Continue reading "GSO Oceanographers on Record-breaking Cruise"
