Complex Deep-sea Environments
With the ever-increasing pressure on our Deep Oceans, there is a rising and urgent need for the quantification of deep-sea biodiversity. Complex Deep-sea Environments: Mapping habitat heterogeneity As Proxy for biodiversity (CodeMAP) searches for alternative methods to quantify deep-sea biodiversity. The aim is to develop a robust, integrated and fully 3D methodology to map complex deep-sea habitats, using a combination of acoustic and visual techniques
CodeMAP is a Starting Grant project supported by the European Research Council (ERC).
