Beneath the Blue: The Importance of Marine Sediments

Martin Solan, University of Southampton

Discover fascinating seafloor habitats and learn how humans affect them

Exactly what lies beneath our oceans? Why is the sea floor, and its marine sediments, so important? And how are humans affecting them? On this course you’ll answer these questions and more.

You will consider the importance of the seafloor and learn about its part in global ecological, chemical and physical processes. You will learn about the vital role that the seafloor plays in providing ecosystem services to society, the current rate at which humans are exploiting seafloor habitats and the need to conserve these systems.

This course is for students from pre-A level to undergraduate who have a passion for, or are studying, marine science, biodiversity, earth systems, global change, ecosystem services or human interaction with marine environment.

It will also be of interest to teachers in these areas, or those with a general interest in ocean science.
