Port of departureHet Horntje, Netherlands
Port of returnHet Horntje, Netherlands
ObjectivesThe benthic subprogramme within OMEX focuses on transport and modes of transport of organic matter from the shelf to the deep, and on questions as how the differences in organic carbon input to the seafloor at different locations is reflected in the geochemistry (early diagenesis) and biology (abundances and activities of macro- and meiofauna, and of heterotrophic bacteria).
