EMB Science Webinar - 'Are we delving any deeper? An update on EMB Position Paper 22'

On Thursday 21 October 2021, EMB hosted its fourteenth #ThirdThursdayScience webinar on the topic of 'Are we delving any deeper? An update on EMB Position Paper 22'. The webinar was 1 hour long and took place from 13:00 - 14:00 CEST.

The webinar 'Are we delving any deeper?' built on the science presented in EMB's Position Paper 22 'Delving Deeper: Critical challenges for 21st century deep-sea research', and includes a presentation and discussion session with Professor Alex Rogers. 

Alex is a marine ecologist who is interested in how biodiversity is distributed in the ocean, especially in the deep sea and on tropical coral reefs. He is also interested in human impacts on the ocean and how to manage human activities to mitigate or reduce degradation of marine ecosystems. His work has taken him to the Atlantic, Indian and Southern Oceans and to the Caribbean investigating coral reef ecosystems, seamounts and deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Alex has worked with governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations in publicising human impacts, especially those from deep-sea fishing and climate change, and on the development of policy solutions to such problems. He is Scientific Director of REV Ocean a foundation aimed at finding solutions to problems affecting the ocean.

The webinar recording is available on the EMB YouTube page, and you can download the powerpoint slides here.
