While the majority of the Centre for Deep Sea researchers have gone out to the Norwegian Sea this summer to study seafloor processes and hydrothermal vents, Desiree Roerdink flew to the other side of the world to do exactly the same thing – in rocks that are more than three billion years old.
The first-known, off-axis, high-temperature deep-sea hydrothermal vents along a portion of the northern East Pacific Rise are hotter and cover more area than any other hydrothermal vents studied to date along this section of the mid-ocean ridge. The discovery demonstrates that there are more hydrothermal vents in the deep-sea than previously thought, and underscores the need for high-resolution... Read more
A short communication from our colleagues on board :)
A recent article from Tor Einar Møller on exploring how microbes can shed light on ancient climate conditions has been featured on a SCIPOD episode.

Raman spectroscopy of zircon allows distinction between truly inherited zircon and those that may be introduced through sample processing.
When did Earth change from a water world into a planet with continents rising above sea level? Together with researchers from The Netherlands and Germany, associate professor Desiree Roerdink from the Department of Earth Science and Centre for Deep Sea Research has found that land appeared very early in Earth’s history – up to one billion years earlier than we previously thought.
A competence building project coordinated by the University of Bergen will investigate if deep-sea mining on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge can take place sustainably, avoiding serious harm to the environment. The project will run for three years with a total budget of approximately 18 million NOK, where more than 13 million are granted by the Research Council of Norway.
Members of the Center have been onboard the Kronprins Håkon for an expedition to the Aurora vent field under the arctic ice.
Runar Stokke, researcher at the Center for Deep Sea Research, is now leading an international project that will aim at investigating the genetic diversity of microbial communities in the hydrothermal systems of the Arctic Mid-Ocean ridge.
