DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
Deep-dwelling cookiecutter sharks feature in the media this week following a new study on their diet and habitat, which reveals their reliance on critters rather than the chunks of larger prey (including humans) that they are renowned for. The New York Times enhances deep-sea literacy through a review of two new books from ocean experts, Helen Scales and Edith Widder, both of whom are guests in podcasts linked from the newsletter.
A more in-depth look at diel vertical migrations reveals variability in intra-day movement driven by cloud cover cues. While the science of soundscapes and their role in monitoring deep-sea ecosystems is explored further in Japanese waters, where deep-sea mining operations take place. The Round-Up contains many more new academic papers and reviews relevant to the deep ocean, as well as a new opportunity for a data scientist at Senckenberg.
