DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
Take a moment to relax with this week’s Round-Up of all the latest deep-sea research and news. Want to know how scavengers react to different types of food that sink to the ocean floor? What about the types of sponges that live on coral skeletons in the Ross Sea? We feature papers on those topics and more in our Hot Off The Press section.
News from the world of seabed mining this week focuses on the 27th session of the ISA Legal and Technical Commission. Other stories include a Lego ROV, studies of the Titanic, and assessments of the biology of the Endurance shipwreck highlighted in our last issue.
There are also plenty of events and opportunities to keep an eye on. The Consortium for Ocean Leadership and NOAA Ocean Exploration are hosting National Ocean Exploration Forum in the US in two weeks. Armatus Oceanic, the group behind the Deep-Sea Podcast, is looking for a Science Communicator, while the ISA is seeking a Director of Environmental Management and Mineral Resources. Plus, if you’re in need of some serious computing power for your ocean project, be sure to scroll to the Wanted section for a chance to use Schmidt Ocean Institute’s high-performance computer.
