In the Gulf of Cadiz, exploration campaigns revealed the presence of numerous mud volcanoes and carbonate mounds built by reef forming cold-water corals. The aim of this project is to study the microbial ecology of these structures, and especially the role of anoxic methane oxidation and carbonate production as a control for mound growth and methane emission in the hydrosphere
