International Collaboration to Develop Ultra-deep Sea Sensors Begins

25.11.2020
This month marks the start of a new international collaboration to better understand the ultra deep-sea through innovative adaptation of sensors to withstand the crushing pressures at depths of down to 11,000 metres. Funded through the NERC Global Partnerships Seedcorn Fund, the project will bring together experts from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) with researchers from the newly created centre of excellence for ultra-deep sea research - the Danish Center for Hadal Research (HADAL) at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), to jointly improve knowledge about the processes governing organic carbon degradation in deep-sea trenches.

New Genus of Giant Single-celled Organism Found on Pacific Seafloor Named after Moana

24.06.2020
Two new genera and four new species of giant, single-celled xenophyophores (protozoans belonging to a group called the foraminifera) were discovered in the deep Pacific Ocean during a joint project between scientists at the National Oceanography Centre, UK (NOC), the University of Hawai’i, and the University of Geneva. ‘Moana’ has inspired the name ‘Moanammina’ for one of the new genera, while the second has been named ‘Abyssalia’ in recognition of its abyssal habitat.

Fast-moving Waterfalls in the Deep Sea

19.06.2020
New research led by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) has discovered how fast-moving waterfalls under the sea control the shape and behaviour of submarine channels. These underwater channels are the offshore equivalents of rivers, but can be much larger. Submarine channels can extend for tens to thousands of kilometres offshore, providing an important conduit for the transfer of sediment, nutrients and pollutants, such as microplastics, to the deep-sea. Avalanches of sediment that flow down these channels also pose a hazard to networks of seafloor cables that underpin global communications, including the internet.
