The Center for Deep Sea Research is involved in a broad range of projects.
Environmental Impact of Microbial Interaction with Deep Oceanic Crust.
An integrated study combining genome-centric metagenomics with metatrascriptomics and high-resolution microscopy, to discover and identify microbial processes and bioactive compounds of novel microbial lineages.
Hydrothermal Production of Organic molecules: carbon transformation and Decomposition in ocean crust fluids.
The NorEMSO project aims to monitor ocean circulation, water mass evolution and impacts of hydrothermal activity in the Nordic Seas.
A competence building project coordinated by the University of Bergen that investigates if deep-sea mining on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge can take place sustainably, avoiding serious harm to the environment.
