Deep-Sea Ecology

Deep-Sea Ecology

We have developed a unique capability for studying the ecology of the deepest, most extreme ocean environments. We look at their response to anthropogenic forcing.

Our research focus

Our principal focus is on spatial and temporal trends in biodiversity and ecology. We look in the deepest 45% of the ocean and chemosynthetic habitats. This includes the oceans' deepest trenches.

Cutting-edge deep-submergence technology

We have developed unique, cutting-edge deep-submergence technology. This includes benthic lander and light, cost effective video cameras for deep sea observation and sampling.
