Earthref sbn research coordination network on seamounts Coordination Network

on Seamounts

Seamount research involves many science disciplines that have much to gain from interfacing with each other. Over-coming the challenges of interdisciplinary integration are important to a successful biological, geochemical, geological and geophysical exploration of the seamount interface between the hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere.

The goal of the Seamount Biogeosciences Network (SBN) is to bring together all the diverse science disciplines involved in seamount research, to communicate about and discuss seamount science, and to explore innovative ways to network amongst the diverse communities working on seamounts.
