Conference Programme 


The workshop is intended as a practical event rather than as a platform for presenting finished work.

It will focus on discussing how we make best use of the ongoing and future activities by identifying gaps in sampling, consistency of methodology, innovative approaches and pooling of data.

More specific themes of the workshop will be...


   - Surface influences on Twilight Zone function

   - Carbon pathways through the Twilight Zone

   - Controls on remineralisation depth

   - New techniques and technologies (this could include AUVs, genomics, imaging, new sensors etc)
