Las plataformas de perforación de petróleo- y gas-mar adentro son hábitats ricos para peces. Eliminarlas por completo resultaría en una pérdida del 95% de biomasa de peces, revela una nueva investigación.
Offshore oil- and gas-drilling platforms are rich habitats for fish, and removing them completely would result in a loss of over 95% of fish biomass, new research has revealed.

In Japan’s submarine Nankai Trough, rock permeability is much higher when measured at larger scales, likely because of big fractures and faults that are not captured at small scales.
Smaller quakes around the active edge of continental plates may contribute to increased stability by promoting compaction and solidifying the top 100 meters of seafloor sediment.
Researchers use carbon signatures within sea sediments to identify microbial activity and also to date earthquakes.
