The Deep Sea - Earth's last frontier

The deep sea has been a mysterious place for the longest time, but we have made it our mission to reveal the unknown!

We are not only scientists - we are explorers.

The K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research was established as a result of a generous contribution from the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation. The centre aims at being a leading international institution and pioneer of deep ocean research. We study the coupling between geological and biological processes in volcanic, hydrothermal and sedimentary environments in the deep sea.
