Podcast: Die Tiefsee als Schatzkammer der Menschheit

The German Federal Ministry of  Education and Research produced a podcast about the treasures of the deep sea. Professor Dr. Andrea Koschinsky (Jacbos University), Dr. Matthias Haeckel (GEOMAR), Professor Dr. Ann Vanreusel (Ghent University) give an insight into the Miningimpact research. The Podcast is in German. Link
