      Article
      Open Access
      The degradation and impoverishment of the seabed that has been detected during last decades is the result of numerous variables, among which are uncontrolled exploitation of the seabed concerning its vulnerability, based ...
    • Deep-Sea Bioluminescence Blooms after Dense Water Formation at the Ocean Surface 

      Tamburini, Christian; Canals Artigas, Miquel; Durrieu de Madron, Xavier; Houpert, Loïc; Lefèvre, Dominique; André, Michel; Aguilar, J.A.; Bigongiari, Ciro; Emanuele, Umberto; Dornic, Damien (2013-07-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The deep ocean is the largest and least known ecosystem on Earth. It hosts numerous pelagic organisms, most of which are able to emit light. Here we present a unique data set consisting of a 2.5-year long record of light ...
    • Drivers and impacts of the most extreme marine heatwaves events 

      Sen Gupta, Alex; Thomsen, Mads; Benthuysen, Jessica A.; Hobday, Alistair J.; Oliver, Eric; Alexander, Lisa V.; Burrows, Michael T.; Donat, Markus; Feng, Ming; Holbrook, Neil J.; Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Sarah; Moore, Pippa J.; Rodrigues, Regina R.; Scannell, Hillary A.; Taschetto, Andréa S.; Ummenhofer, Caroline C.; Wernberg, Thomas; Smale, Dan A. (Springer Nature, 2020)
      Article
