DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
This week, the Deep-sea Round-Up starts with a fascinating new publication on the magnetic foraminifera that live in the Mariana Trench. There’s plenty more research to browse too, including articles on walleye pollock, survival strategies of deep-sea mussels, and the importance of removing barriers to ocean science careers in under-resourced nations.
In the Deep-Sea Mining section, we feature a review of DOSI experts’ involvement in last month’s ISA meeting. There is also a new opinion piece written for Earth Day by Dr. Dawn Wright, popularly known as “Deepsea Dawn.”
It’s the season for Ph.D. and Master’s theses, so this week’s Round-Up includes a number of relevant pieces by early career researchers. Their topics range from deep-sea mining knowledge gaps to the fate of microplastics in marine systems. Our Events and Opportunities sections also showcase some valuable options for early career readers, including next week’s DOOS meeting, a fellowship for training and capacity development, and more.
Finally, make sure to read to the end for an exciting new article by ocean-focused artist and teacher Frieda Verlage, who reflects on the ocean art that her 8th grade portfolio class created after a “Skype a Scientist” session with Ann Marie Hulver of Ohio State University.
