The K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research (JC-DeepSea) was established as a result of a generous contribution from the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation. It aims to be a leading international Centre for deep ocean research.
Our researcher Steffen Leth Jørgensen is one of the principle investigators of the SUSTAIN project and along with an international team of researchers he will exploit the opportunity to investigate the deep biosphere on the volcanic island Surtsey.
The summer of 2017 a long-term temperature sensors, current meters, pressure gauge and ocean bottom seismometers (OBS) was deployed to look at how natural physical processes (e.g. ocean tides, micro-earthquakes) to constrain subsurface permeability structure beneath Loki’s Castle hydrothermal site.
Thibaut Barreyre at the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea research has been appointed to lead a new InterRidge working group focusing on Integrating Multidisciplinary Observations in Vent Environments (IMOVE).
