As mentioned in one of my previous posts, one of my goals while I am in Trinidad is to increase the public’s awareness of the deep ocean. I’ve already done one talk at the Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalist Club on the deep sea around Trinidad and Tobago. Below you can find two articles that I’ve written about the deep ocean.

  1. To commemorate four years since my journey down into the Cayman Trench in the Shinkai6500 submersible, I’ve written a two part article on the experience. The first part was published in the Trinidad Newsday on 15th June 2017 and the second part on 22nd June 2017.
  2. I also wrote an article about the deep sea around Trinidad and Tobago that was simultaneously published on the Wild Tobago blog and in the Tobago Newsday on 22nd June 2017.

Hooray! My guest post for the blog ‘Deep Sea News’ is now up!

The post highlights my postdoctoral research investigating the megafauna that live in the UKSRL claim area in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone in the Pacific Ocean. This area has some of the most valuable metal resources on the planet: vast fields of polymetallic nodules. This work is part of the ABYSSLINE Project and is crucial as this area will likely be mined in the near future.
