  Information - BG6.08 Methods, tools and strategies for biogeochemical interactions studies in reducing deep-sea environments (co-listed in SSP)

Event Information
The past decade has raised challenging questions about the processes driving the interactions between biotic and abiotic compartments of hydrothermal and other deep-sea reducing environments like cold seeps.
Among these, the role of microbes in rocks weathering/biomineralisation at/beneath the seafloor, the impact of physico-chemical gradients on the diversity of symbiotic invertebrates communities at hot and cold vents, the dynamics of microbial controls on energy transfer and elemental fluxes in chemosynthetic ecosystems are some of the most important ones.
This session will address advanced inter-disciplinary research to understand basic mechanisms linking geological, chemical and biological processes, including the development of new instrumental devices for the exploration, observation, experimentation and monitoring at relevant scales on the seafloor.
