Diversity of habitats

Habitats surrounding natural oil seeps on the sea floor are multifaceted and diverse. Each of the different constituents is home to its own characteristic group of organisms. Scientists have now published their initial results, along with photos from the remotely operated vehicle MARUM-QUEST, in the journal Biogeosciences.

Tropical rivers breathe carbon

About half of the carbon dioxide that is produced by humankind is taken up by seas and oceans. However, large tropical river systems can also store substantial amounts of carbon, which are released when the climate changes. This has been verified in a new scientific publication by Dr. Enno Schefuß and published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Glances into the deep sea

Nature is remarkable at creating forms of awesome beauty. Submersible vehicles from MARUM have dived into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean and discovered a habitat filled with color and harmony. Photographs of this deep-sea habitat will be presented from 11 August until 15 September at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) in Delmenhorst.
