How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am working as a project technician in the RESCAP and MITICAP projects, which aim to restore gorgonian populations collected in fishing by-catch and mitigate the impacts of artisanal fishing on sensitive habitats of the Mediterranean continental shelf.
Antarctic benthic communities have long been regarded as relicts of the past, since they have developed in a very stable environment and are formed by slow-growing and extraordinary long-lived organisms. However, little is known about the life history traits of gorgonian species, which are considered key components of the Antarctic benthos. In this...
Exploration of the ocean is still one of the greatest challenges facing humankind. In the last decades our knowledge has increased considerably, thanks mainly to technological advances such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and manned underwater vehicles, as well as new acoustic techniques that allow us to see the sea floor on a computer screen...
Deep-sea corals (DSCs), similar to their tropical counterparts, potentially provide continuous, high-resolution records of surrounding seawater conditions for up to a century or more. Several CWC elemental and isotopic ratios have been suggested as useful proxies of past oceanic conditions, for example for temperature, nutrients and CO2 system para...
Cold-Water Corals (CWCs), and most marine calcifiers, are especially threatened by ocean acidification (OA) and the decrease in the carbonate saturation state of seawater. The vulnerability of these organisms, however, also involves other global stressors like warming, deoxygenation or changes in sea surface productivity and, hence, food supply via...
The Mediterranean Sea is particularly sensitive to climate oscillations and represents a key location to study past climatic and oceanographic changes. One valuable source of paleoceanographic information is through molecular biomarkers in deep sea sediments. This approach has been applied in a number of studies in this basin, but only covering the...
La exploración del océano sigue siendo uno de los grandes retos de la humanidad. En las últimas décadas se ha avanzado mucho en su conocimiento, gracias sobre todo a adelantos tecnológicos como los vehículos operados remotamente (ROV) o los submarinos tripulados, además de técnicas acústicas que permiten visualizar el relieve del fondo marino en la...
Within the framework of ResCap project, thanks to the collaboration between artisanal fishermen of Port de la Selva and Cadaqués and scientifics of Marine Sciences Institute (ICM-CSIC) it is carrying out a large-scale restoration of the gorgonian populations in the marine protected area of Cap de Creus.
