The deep ocean (below 200 m) covers nearly half the planet but remains a final frontier on earth. It is full of mineral, energy and genetic resources and serves as a living library of biodiversity. Special features of these deep-ocean ecosystems make them especially vulnerable to the confluence of climate stress and direct human disturbance. The coming decade promises new initiatives, networks, and policy instruments to address the challenge of sustainability in the deep half of the planet.
This event is free and open to the public.
