Deep-Sea Science and Environmental Management explores ecosystems in the deep sea, including fundamental aspects of geology, chemistry, and biodiversity; behavioral, physiological and biochemical adaptations of organisms (primarily invertebrate, but may include microbial and vertebrate components) to deep-sea benthic and bentho-paelagic environments will be introduced; students will gain an understanding of the ecosystem services of the deep sea; issues in deep-sea environmental management arising from exploitation of deep-sea resources will be discussed.
