墨西哥深鸿沟的奇妙野兽

我最近从海上近两周返回了一个与墨西哥湾探索墨西哥湾的近两周,差不多一英里半。  您可以在我们的Reddit AMA上阅读我们的冒险经历。 主要目标是部署近200 木瀑布 在深海地板上。由国家科学基金会资助的工作探索海洋生物因气候变化而如何应对改变食品供应。木材落在深海,提供了少量实验系统,用于测试思路。这项工作与远程操作的车辆进行,让我们有机会探索墨西哥大湾发现的惊人生物。以下是才华横溢的摄影师拍摄的一套惊人的照片 杰森布拉德利, 探险的一部分,以及科学家和Rov团队乘坐4K相机拍摄的主机照片 Oceaneering’s 全球探险家.

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
