OCT 2018-T2.3 Impact studies on seafloor biodiversity and function
In October a WP2 cruise in Frohavet and Frøya was conducted on board NTNU's research vessel, R/V Gunnerus. Kasper Hancke and Gunhild Borgersen from NIVA were responsible for collecting benthic fauna and sediments and they can confirm that the old saying is true: there is a pot of gold (or at least some pretty nice core samples) at the end of the rainbow!
