DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
Happy Earth Day Week! The Deep-Sea Round-Up is here with the latest news from the world’s largest habitat. Our first article this week is making especially big waves: It shows that different sampling methods have a major impact on assessments of deep pelagic creatures, especially for animals with very delicate bodies. Other exciting new research includes papers on octocoral life history, deep-sea research capacity in South Africa, and lessons for advancing science/policy knowledge exchange.
In Deep-Seabed Mining news, the ISA is currently seeking comments on its Draft Regional Environmental Management Plan for the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge. There are also new opportunities this week, including an ocean exploration video challenge for students and a postdoc studying cold-water corals.
Our Wanted section today features a call for signatures in support of a marine sanctuary in the Northern Mariana Islands and a survey on the potential creation of a single, global list of species for taxonomy. Finally, this week’s Round-Up ends with an introduction to an interactive, ocean-noise-monitoring app by Toronto student Artash Nath.
