Observing the development of a deep-sea greenhouse gas filter

Sep 28, 2018

It takes time to do a thing well, this also and specifically applies to the deep sea. In a long-term study, marine scientists from Bremen for the first time observed the colonization of a deep-sea mud volcano after its eruption. Only slowly, rich life develops around the crater. The first settler...

Influence of carbon dioxide leakage on the seabed

Feb 7, 2018

Storing carbon dioxide (CO2) deep below the seabed is one way to counteract the increasing concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. But what happens if such storage sites begin to leak and CO2 escapes through the seafloor? Answers to this question have now been provided by a study dealing with the...

Newly discovered methane consumers in lakes

Jun 7, 2017

In freshwater lakes, large amounts of the greenhouse gas methane are oxidized by bacteria before it can be emitted into the atmosphere. A study in Lakes Rotsee and Zug has now shown that the bulk of this work is done, not by “classical” methane consumers, but by filamentous bacteria previously kn...

Phantoms in the Deep (and how they help mussels get on)

Aug 5, 2016

Hydrothermal vents in the deep sea are hundreds and thousands of kilometers apart and their inhabitants are isolated and not directly connected to each other. And yet there is clearly some sort of exchange between individual vents as similar species can be found at vents that are very far apart f...
