Geodynamics of the Deep Seafloor
This theme involves deep-sea exploration and searching for new extreme environments. It provides a foundation for the Centre’s geobiological research by providing knowledge about the geological and geochemical context of the Centre’s focus sites. In addition, researchers working in this theme have several independent research objectives relating to hydrothermal systems, seabed fluid flow and the geodynamics of spreading ridges.

About Deep Seafloor Dynamics
Within a limited geographical area near Svalbard we have hot vents and cold seeps, volcanoes and mud-volcanoes.
