Kathy Dunlop: Experimental flume studies into the modification of benthic booundary layer flow by jellyfall carcasses.
A poster was presented on describing the JellyFarm Project by Paul.
Kathy also presented a poster on the deepest salp fall recorded during a cruise on the RV Sonne in Equatorial Pacific. This work describes how the troughs created by experimental deep-sea mining were concentrating carbon input to the abyss from salp falls.
