Microbes far beneath the ocean floor rely on recycling to survive
Mar 11, 2020
An international team of researchers has studied the survival mechanisms of microorganisms in rocks that nestle in the lower oceanic crust thousands of meters below the ocean floor. The study, led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), has now been published in the journal Nature. Dr. Florence Schubotz from MARUM – Centre for Marine Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen is also involved.
