DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
This has been a huge week for the deep-sea community, and the Round-Up is here to cover it all. We start with the report that broke into major news outlets this week of a massive icefish breeding colony in the Antarctic. Then, it’s on to shipwrecks as hosts of biodiversity, ammonia-oxidizing archaea, and phototrophic bacteria at hydrothermal vents.
The deep-sea mining section this week features a new compilation of perspectives on deep-sea mining and reactions to Tuvalu’s application to the ISA. In Events, we showcase a lecture by DOSI Decade Working Group Lead Kerry Howell, activities related to the UN Ocean Conference, and a workshop on applying AI algorithms in ocean research. Finally, our Opportunities section is full of ways to support your deep-sea work, including access to research facilities and funded PhDs.
Our cover art for this week , Rosebud Whale Fall, is by the incredible Tanya Young, and her website is linked to share the story of the creatures within the painting.
The Round-Up will be taking next week off, but only to make room for the exciting publication of Issue 18 of Deep-Sea Life. We hope you’re looking forward to it!
