Project: Using cold-water coral mini-mounds as analogue for giant mound growth: assessment of environmental drivers and anthropogenic impact (MINIMOUND)

2013-01-01 – 2018-12-31

Abstract

The MINIMOUND project aims to study the initiation, growth and demise of cold-water coral mounds in relationship with climatic and hydrocarbon-seepage related processes. This study will focus on three provinces of mounds along the Biscay margin. In the first place, we aim to establish a chronostratigraphic framework and decipher the palaeoceanographic changes within the last 15000 years
