DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
This week has been an eventful one for the deep ocean! Our Round-Up today starts with a recap of DOSI’s activities in ocean policy this month before launching into the latest publications. Those publications cover topics including hydrothermal vent communities near Papua New Guinea, Asteroidea sea stars, and a new jellyfish species.
In our deep-sea mining section, we share news about the ongoing ISA session and a new paper on whether seabed mining is needed. Our other top news stories this week report on new expedition plans, a lawsuit over a deep-sea gas pipeline, and the UN Ocean Treaty Summit.
You can’t have an eventful week without a full schedule of events, and today we are including four new ones on our radar. Especially interesting is the annual meeting of the Deep Ocean Observing Strategy (DOOS) schedule for the start of May. We also feature new opportunities, including two postdoc positions.
Finally, do you know the story behind why deep-sea genetic resources are so useful for medicine? Make sure to scroll to the end of the Round-Up to hear Ph.D. Candidate Sam Afoullouss explain in a TEDx talk.
