Field-based research course on hydrothermal systems and the potential impacts of mineral mining (15.05.2023)
Members of the Center for Deep Sea Research and the University of Athens have received funding from Akademia Avtalen to organize a field-based course on the Island of Milos (Greece). Here is the description and the application link.
Francesca vulcano and her coworkers have been awarded the 2022 best article award from FEMS microbiology ecology. The article investigates the evolution and adaptation to different environments of anaerobic methane oxidizing Archaea.
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.
Tor Einar Møller successfully defended his PhD on Friday.
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 led by Pedro Ribeiro, a researcher at the Centre for Deep-Sea Research of the University of Bergen, will investigate if deep-sea mining on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge can take place responsibly, avoiding serious harm to the environment.
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.
The geomicrobiology laboratory starts the "My green lab" certification.
The Center for Deep Sea Research welcomes a guest student from the University of Utrecht.
As every year when summer starts, the Center for Deep Sea Research sets sails on the G.O SARS to investigate and sample the Nordic Seas.
