Abstract 1. 1. Extensive changes in marine communities in southwest Britain and the western English Channel have been recorded during the past 70 years. 2. 2. Over the same period there was aExpand
Ecology of a North Sea pockmark with an active methane seep
ABSTRACT: At a large North Sea pockmark, with active methane seeps, surface sediments were found to have higher insoluble sulphide concentrations than sedlments from the surrounding area. The faunaExpand
