Fledermaus Movie Featured as Part of TEDxBrussels Talk

Dr. Laura F. Robinson, Reader in Geochemistry at the University of Bristol, recently gave a TEDxBrussels talk in December regarding her work on documenting and understanding the processes that govern climate on time scales ranging from the modern day back through hundreds of thousands of years.  The field component of her palaeoceanographic research, collecting and imaging deep-water corals on bathymetric highs, has taken her to vast reaches of the oceans. Laura is an advocate for expanding the map of the seafloor, especially in areas beyond national jurisdiction, and thus 125,300 square kilometers of seafloor were mapped during three of her research cruises in both the Southern and Atlantic Oceans.  These maps derived from multibeam bathymetry data greatly improved the known detail of the seafloor in comparison to the previously existing altimetry derived grids. At this resolution, the ability to understand the morphology of numerous seamounts, fracture zones, and ocean ridges greatly increased.

Through a Fledermaus movie generated by Dr. Veerle A.I. Huvenne (National Oceanography Centre, Southampton) and Shannon Hoy (U.S. Geological Survey, Woods Hole), these seafloor features were highlighted in Laura’s talk.

You can view the full talk from YouTube below, and watch for the Fledermaus footage around minute five!:
