DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up

2 March 2023

The claw on the manipulator arm of remotely operated vehicle Deep Discoverer reaches towards an interesting sponge collected at 1,199 meters during the eighth dive of the second Voyage to the Ridge 2022 expedition. We thought this image was especially fitting given the BBNJ IGC-5 meeting this week! Image courtesy of NOAA Ocean Exploration. Deep-sea photos shared through DOSI can be found on our Flickr page.

Welcome! This week’s Deep-Sea Round-Up features new research on identifying vulnerable marine ecosystems, cold seep bacteria, and coral recovery. There are also events coming up hosted by COBRA and the Deep Ocean Observing Strategy Strategy (DOOS) so make sure to take a look. Today’s issue also includes six new opportunities, from a benthic ecologist position with the British Antarctic Survey to a PhD in Marine Microbiology. Enjoy!
