Abstract:

Gnaiger 1983 Springer POS

The deep-sea environment occupies over half the earth’s surface. However, inaccessibility has greatly restricted the study of this unique environment characterized by high pressure and low temperature. Technological advances over the past 15 years permit us to “enter” the deep-sea environment either directly with submersibles or indirectly with sophisticated instrumentation to make observations, collections and measurements and to conduct experiments. With these advances, the biological dynamics of the deep-sea ecosystem are slowly being resolved. Our contributions to this resolution are related to energy flow and, more specifically, the metabolism of deep-sea organisms. The integral component of our instrumentation used in these studies is the polarographic oxygen sensor (POS).
