Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. Mike Johnston, chief executive of Nautilus Minerals told the BBC "that a temperature probe left in place for 18 months was found to have 'high grade copper all over it'." Nautilus announced in April that it had completed its bulk cutter, the first component of its Seafloor Production Tools system, which will be used to mine the seabed. Nautilus also approximately 500,000 square kilometres of "highly prospective exploration acreage" in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, as well as in international waters in the eastern Pacific, the company said in a press release. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This webseries addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Episode 1: Tools for Ocean Literacy is a cartographical survey of technologies that have contributed to ocean literacy and seabed mapping. Structured around a single shot along a vertical axis, the episode inquires about deep sea mining and the types of geologic formations where it is set to occur, particularly hydrothermal vents. Understanding the process of deep sea mining demands not only a temporal investigation – its main dates, legal, and corporate landmarks, and scientific breakthroughs – but also a spatial axis connecting the seafloor to outer space cartographic technologies. After all, we know less about the ocean depths than about the universe beyond this blue planet.

=== Abstract === Deep-sea mining is the process of retrieving mineral deposits from the deep seabed, the area of the seabed below 200m. Whilst there has been interest in the deep seabed since the 1970s, there has been growing interest in recent years due to the depleting deposits from terrestrial sources of metals such as manganese, coupled with the increasing demand for the same metals in green technologies such as wind turbines. Each resource type will have specific challenges, solutions, technologies and mining techniques. In essence, all will require seafloor vehicles to crush and collect the material which will then be fed to the support vessel. However, as the deep sea remains understudied and poorly understood, there are many gaps in our understanding of its biodiversity and ecosystems. This makes it difficult to thoroughly assess the potential impacts of deep-sea mining and to put in place adequate safeguards to protect the marine environment. As there are likely to be impacts beyond our current knowledge, the International Seabed Authority (ISA) is operating a dual mandate of promoting the development of deep-sea minerals whilst ensuring that this development is not harmful to the environment. As such, they are currently going through the process of consultation with the international community (government representatives, scientific community, private contractors etc.) to ensure that the marine life is adequately protected. This presentation will discuss why deep seabed mining is gaining traction and review the governance to date looking at what is already in place and where the gaps are. === Speaker: David Carlin, Ocean Governance SIG - https://www.imarest.org/special-interest-groups/ocean-governance === David is the Science Director at CEFAS, and has worked primarily on science, evidence and advice in support of the regulation of activities in the marine environment. He undertook a secondment to the former Marine and Fisheries Agency (the forerunner to the Marine Management Organisation, MMO) to provide a link between scientific evidence and regulation and assist with the transfer of policy and regulation between government departments. During his time at Cefas David has fulfilled a number of scientific and managerial roles within the organisation and roles outside, including programme steering group membership and ICES Expert Group Chair.

3D METHOD STATEMENT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A DEEP AND LARGE DIAMETER BLIND SHAFT FOR THE PASSAGE OF FOUR (3) GAS PIPELINES AND A VENTILATION SHAFT. The video shows the method statement for the construction of large diameter shafts for the passage of gas pipelines, even though blind shafts are usually used in the mining industry. In this particular project pipelines were installed vertically and had a depth of 600 meters and were 2m in diameter. A pendular rig with the usage of reverse circulation drilling and water as the drilling fluid were utilized to accomplish the excavation of the shafts. This is a totally mechanized process which eliminates the need of humans entering the shaft during its construction thus removing any safety hazard associated with this activity. www.brasfond.com For more information please contact [email protected]sa.com or +1 (330) 262 0015.

Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This web series addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied.

In this episode of Upgrade, Motherboard goes to Baja California, Mexico to get a firsthand look at these free floating pods, and to get an understanding for why we need better ways to cultivate our future food sources. Whether it’s found on a plate of sushi, grilled in our backyard, or thrown on pasta, seafood is a staple for many diets around the world, and demand is growing. And as the commercial seafood industry booms, fish stocks worldwide face perilous declines. We’ve surpassed our capacity to sustainably fish wild caught fish, shrimp, and mollusks from the ocean, and so we’ve turned to aquaculture, or fish farming, as a strategy to meet demand for our growing appetites for water-borne critters. The aquaculture industry is growing fast. According to the FAO, per capita production of seafood from aquaculture has increased 6.9 percent annually since 1970. Unfortunately for us and for our Earth, current methods of fish farming often involve crowded, tethered pens, which can have poor water circulation and contribute to the spread of disease, and put large amounts of environmental stress on the surrounding waterways. This is where Steve Page of Ocean Farm Technologies comes in. Taking inspiration from naturally-occurring schools of fish and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, Page co-designed the Aquapod, a free floating, untethered deep ocean fish habitat which reduces overcrowding, and creates less stress on surrounding environments due to its unique ability to change location with the ocean's current.

China's first domestically-made 60-meter submersible deep-sea driller completed its first trial run in the South China Sea on Sunday and returned to east China's Fujian Province. The "Sea Bull," which the scientists call the machine, drilled 60 meters into the seabed under 3,000 meters of water to collect samples. Its successful return means that China has become the fourth country in the world to have the technology. The six-meter tall Sea Bull weighs eight ton and has a circumference of 10 meters. It has gone through rigorous compression tests to see if it can withstand water presssure at more than 3,000 meters. Each small area amounts to the size of a finger nail and should withstand 300 kilograms of pressure, about the total weight of four adults. "In the high pressure chamber of our lab, all these items will go through a test of 50 Mpa. Then they can withstand water pressure under 5,000 meters," said Luo Bowen, associate professor of Marine Resources Exploring Equipment Laboratory at Hunan University of Science and Technology. The Sea Bull has 24 drill rods as its weapons, each measuring 2.5 meters long. All the 24 drill rods are arranged like bullets of a revolving pistol on a turn plate. When the plate turns around, different rods can be pushed to a manipulator for drilling tasks. "Other drilling rigs can only twist their drilling rods for a half-circle at a time and then stop, and twist another half-circle. Ours can spin without stopping. So the Sea Bull can fasten drill rods quickly," said Wan Buyan, chief expert of Sea Bull project. The drill rods are designed for different rocks on the seabed as some are hard while others softer. "We have designed three kinds of drill rods. One is for hard rocks, the other for soft rocks mainly consisting of sediments. The last one is for drilling without taking any samples," said Huang Xiaojun, professor of Marine Resources Exploring Equipment Laboratory of Hunan University of Science and Technology. It took the Sea Bull 10 hours to drill 60 meters into the seabed to collect samples. "The successful experiment means that we have independently collect samples in deep water. This technological application will significantly promote our technologies in deep sea marine geological science and geotechnical engineering," said Zhou Yangrui, leader of inspection team of Sea Bull project.

Dr. Greg Stone explains the process of ocean mining and its environmental impact. Land mining releases carbon and displaces animals, whereas collecting nodules of base metals from the ocean floor is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to get the metals we need for cleaner forms of energy using batteries, wind turbines, and solar cells. He talks about the area in the ocean DeepGreen mines that looks like a desert containing nodules that have formed and can be picked up and processed with little to no waste.

Research on seabed exploitation and seabed mining is a complex transdisciplinary field that demands for further attention and development. Since the field links engineering, economics, environmental, legal and supply chain research, it demands for research from a systems point of view. This implies the application of a holistic sustainability framework of to analyse the feasibility of engineering systems. The research at hand aims to close this gap by developing such a framework and providing a review of seabed resources. Based on this review it identifies a significant potential for massive sulphides in inactive hydrothermal vents and sediments to solve global resource scarcities. The research aims to provide background on seabed exploitation and to apply a holistic systems engineering approach to develop general guidelines for sustainable seabed mining of polymetallic sulphides and a new concept and solutions for the Atlantis II Deep deposit in the Red Sea. The research methodology adpted will start with acquiring a broader academic and industrial view on sustainable seabed mining through online survey and expert interviews on seabed mining. The experts are chosen according to their knowledge in one or more of the dimensions of seabed mining introduced in the research framework. The Nautilus Minerals case is also reviewd for lessons learned for seabed mining and the presented concept in particular with identification of challaenges and issues. Therafter, a new concept and site specific assessment for Atlantis II Deep is developed. The research undertaken in this study provides a new perspective regarding the sustainable seabed mining. The main contributions of this research are the development of extensive guidelines for key issues in sustainable seabed mining as well as a new concept for seabed mining involving engineering systems, environmental impact, economical benefits, logistics chain supply and legal aspects.

Deep Sea Exploration Documentary - Into The Sea Abyss - Documentary Films Deep-sea exploration is the investigation of physical, chemical, and biological conditions on the sea bed, for scientific or commercial purposes. Deep-sea exploration is considered as a relatively recent human activity compared to the other areas of geophysical research, as the depths of the sea have been investigated only during comparatively recent years. The ocean depths still remain as a largely unexplored part of the planet, and form a relatively undiscovered domain. In general, modern scientific Deep-sea exploration can be said to have begun when French scientist Pierre Simon de Laplace investigated the average depth of the Atlantic ocean by observing tidal motions registered on Brazilian and African coasts. He calculated the depth to be 3,962 m (13,000 ft), a value later proven quite accurate by soundings measurement. Later on, with increasing demand for submarine cables installment, accurate soundings was required and the first investigations of the sea bottom were undertaken. First deep-sea life forms were discovered in 1864 when Norwegian researchers obtained a sample of a stalked crinoid at a depth of 3,109 m (10,200 ft). The British Government sent out the Challenger expedition (a ship called the HMS Challenger) in 1872 which discovered 715 new genera and 4,417 new species of marine organisms over the space of 4 years. The first instrument used for deep-sea investigation was the sounding weight, used by British explorer Sir James Clark Ross. With this instrument, he reached a depth of 3,700 m (12,140 ft) in 1840. The Challenger expedition used similar instruments called Baillie sounding machines to extract samples from the sea bed. Teleoperated Robotics is one of the safest way to explore deep waters: a remotely operated robot vehicle (ROV) becomes the divers eyes and hands in deep marine environments. Decompression sickness ('the bends') can occur if a diver surfaces too quickly from extreme depths; nitrogen in the blood will come out of solution during rapid ascent, and can cause serious injury or death. Using teleoperated robotics or Atmospheric Diving Suits (ADS), which are human shaped (anthropomorphic) submarine exoskeletons, provide a relatively safe method of exploration, with the disadvantage that the lack of fine motor control limits how much of the environment can be closely examined. Bhargav Gajjar of Vishwa Robotics and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with funding from the Office of Naval Research of the US Navy, is conducting research into deep-sea manipulators in an effort to create a more sensitive system for deep-sea work. This technological breakthrough is a major milestone in human exploration of the last frontier. In 1960, Jacques Piccard and US Navy Lieutenant Donald Walsh descended in the bathyscaphe Trieste into the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the world's oceans, to make the deepest dive in history: 10,915 meters (35,810 ft). On 25 March 2012, filmmaker James Cameron descended into the Mariana Trench and, for the first time, is expected to have filmed and sampled the bottom.

Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see.

Europe is currently discussing the fate of the deep ocean in the North East Atlantic. The European Commission has proposed to ban what scientists describe as the most destructive fishing gear in history, deep-sea bottom trawling, a heavily subsidized, fuel-intensive fishing method that destroys fragile millenary corals that live in the dark depths of the ocean. But industrial fishing lobbies from France and Spain have launched a war on European institutions to defeat the will of citizens and scientists in order to protect their short-term interests. With a petition signed by over 835,000 people, the non-profit organization BLOOM, founded by Claire Nouvian, is at the forefront of a battle against absurd economic and ecological models of exploitation.

While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.
