Marine biologist Sabine Gollner investigates the various types of life in the deep sea. ‘Half of the earth’s surface consists of seas deeper than 200 metres. However, the deep seafloor is definitely not uniform. There are hot springs, wide plains with potato-shaped polymetallic nodules, mountain chains and trenches and coral reefs. Just like on land, there is a lot of variation in the deep-sea landscape. And the deep-sea landscape is also under threat from (future) economic exploitation.’
