DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
The Deep-Sea Round-Up is back just in time for some truly fascinating research. This week starts with an assessment of the impact the sinking of the USS Johnston 77 years ago had on the seafloor, with no recovery visible to this day. There is also new research on deep-sea biodiversity monitoring tools, microplastics found in vampire squid, and safe working environments on the high seas.
In the deep-sea mining section, we feature new papers and an effort by Surfrider and Monterey Bay Aquarium to prohibit deep-sea mining in California waters. Then, in deep-sea news, we highlight the UNFCCC secretariat’s brand new ocean-focused webpages.
After a video shared by the Coral Reefs of the High Seas Coalition, the Round-Up continues with all the latest events and opportunities, including the ICES annual Science Conference and new academic positions. Then, in the wanted section, we introduce our new Zenodo community where we hope to collect all DOSI-related papers.
Finally, don’t forget to scroll to the end to help RevOcean name their new submersible! We hope that our deep-sea community can offer many good suggestions.
