Research project: Deepseas

Currently Active: 
Yes

The Deepseas Group is one of the largest single groups of deep-sea biologists in the world, having around 30 staff, visiting researchers and postgraduate students

The Deepseas Group has a broad research base, spanning the largest international, European and UK programmes to the individual research projects of our postgraduate students. Our science ranges from pure alpha-taxonomy (eg foraminiferans, amphipods and echinoderms) to the development of leading edge facilities (eg Pressure Lab) and technology (eg Autosub camera system). There are projects concerning genetics, biochemistry, autecology, standing stocks, alpha-, beta- and gamma-diversity, habitat mapping, conservation, biogeochemistry, modelling, and a host more.

The Deepseas Group is part of the wider Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems Research Group. It owns or uses a range of cutting-edge facilities including the Pressure Lab. You can find more information about the Deepseas Group on www.noc.soton.ac.uk/obe/PROJECTS/DEEPSEAS/research.html
