Diversity of Bacteria and Archaea associated with a carbonate-rich metalliferous sediment sample from the Rainbow vent field on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
Two sediment cores were collected in an inactive area of the deep-sea hydrothermal vent field Rainbow (36 degrees N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge). Metals and carbonates were abundant throughout theExpand

Agulhas leakage as a key process in the modes of Quaternary climate changes
Heat and salt transfer from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean (Agulhas leakage) has an important effect on the global thermohaline circulation and climate. The lack of long transfer recordExpand

The end of the Messinian salinity crisis: Evidences from the Chelif Basin (Algeria)
How did the Messinian Salinity Crisis end is a matter of intense debate between two opposite concepts i.e., the generalised dilution event, the so-called Lago–Mare, followed by the sudden restorationExpand

CH 4 -consuming microorganisms and the formation of carbonate crusts at cold seeps
To understand the role played by microorganisms in the formation of cold seep carbonates, we conducted an integrated microbial, mineralogical and organic geochemical study of methane-relatedExpand

Coupled organic and inorganic carbon cycling in the deep subseafloor sediment of the northeastern Bering Sea Slope (IODP Exp. 323)
Abstract We studied microbially mediated diagenetic processes driven by carbon mineralization in subseafloor sediment of the northeastern Bering Sea Slope to a depth of 745 meters below seafloorExpand

First insights into the structure and environmental setting of cold-seep communities in the Marmara Sea
A brackish-water cold seep on the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) in the Marmara Sea was investigated with the Nautile submersible during the MarNaut cruise in 2007. This active zone has already beenExpand

Archaeal and bacterial lipids in authigenic carbonate crusts from eastern Mediterranean mud volcanoes
Abstract We investigated the distributions and δ 13 C values of lipid biomarkers in authigenic methane-related carbonate crusts formed on eastern Mediterranean mud volcanoes. A highly diverse suiteExpand

Menes caldera, a highly active site of brine seepage in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea: "In situ" observations from the NAUTINIL expedition (2003)
Abstract This paper reports the first “ in situ ” seafloor observations of fluid escape structures in a fault-controlled caldera-type depression of about 8 km diameter, named the Menes caldera, inExpand
