I am currently studying the taxonomic composition, assemblage structure and diversity of benthic foraminifera from the abyssal Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (Eastern equatorial Pacific). This work is part of the ABYSLSLINE project that aims to process a benthic biological baseline study in the UK1 claim area before likely future manganese nodule mining.
