#Mesophotic on Mastodon

#WeekendReading: James et al. went down with a submarine to study #mesophotic reefs and came back with a story to tell.


New #PrePrint out!
#Mesophotic #reefs are different from Euphotic ones, but not only biologically, also sedimentologically. With cutting-edge #AUV and #SyntheticApertureSonar, we can begin to see how.


Just added Thoms Rock to my diving sites wish list
RT @ValerioMicaroni
ROV is nice, but diving is better! Yesterday we finally got a chance to dive Thoms Rock in Cook Strait (New Zealand) to collect data on #temperate #mesophotic communities.

So much life in these reefs!🦞🐟🐠🦈🦭🪸🐚



Fresh personal website, check it out!
Projects and pics🪸🧬🤿🥼

While searching for a job/PhD, I realized I'm more likely to contact researchers that have a personal/lab website where I can find more info on their research lines, open positions, etc. That's why I decided to create my own (next time I want to try to make it with #QuartoPub)
