In Deep

Over 70% of our planet is under water, some of it 11km deep. (part of the Café Scientifique series)


Although the first ocean surveys were conducted in the 1870s, we still know less about the deep ocean than we do the moon's surface. Yet, without an understanding of the oceans, how can we accurately model climate change, or ensure that we don't damage the oceans precious resources?

New technologies for studying the ocean are expanding our knowledge. How will this affect our future? And what outstanding mysteries of the deep remain to be solved?

Richard Corfield is an earth scientist at Oxford University. He is a regular feature writer for popular magazines in the natural sciences and author of Architects of Eternity: the new science of fossils, and most recently, The Silent Landscape: in the wake of HMS Challenger.

In the chair: Daniel Glaser, neuroscientist at UCL.
