Webinar | Study Processes at the Seafloor: Methods and Applications

Biological, chemical, and physical processes at the seafloor play an essential role in aquatic environments. In-situ incubations of sediment with overlying water provide valuable and consistent information on sediment-water solute exchanges.

In this educational webinar, we discuss:

- Experiences learned from use of Gothenburg University benthic chamber landers during more than 300 deployments/1000 incubations in water depths ranging from 5 to 5600 m.

- Measurements of different solutes/contaminants will be presented as well as manipulative injection experiments to study the N-cycle.

-Phosphate retention and the effects of sediment resuspension
