Environmental management frameworks for offshore mining: the New Zealand approach
The New Zealand region contains untapped natural mineral, oil, and gas resources while also supporting globally unique and diverse faunal communities that need to be managed sustainably. In this
Ocean sediments as the global sink for marine micro‐ and mesoplastics
About 15 Tg of plastic are estimated to enter the ocean yearly, with this figure growing exponentially every year. Assessments of floating marine plastic amount to 0.2% of the expected plastic stock,
Electrifying passenger road transport in India requires near-term electricity grid decarbonisation
Battery-electric vehicles (BEV) have emerged as a favoured technology solution to mitigate transport greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in many non-Annex 1 countries, including India. GHG mitigation
The Future of Marine Spatial Planning—Perspectives from Early Career Researchers
In early 2021, the Erasmus+ knowledge flows partnership organised a session to discuss the future of marine spatial planning (MSP) at an international conference. We, a group of nine early career
Understanding the Impacts of Blue Economy Growth on Deep-Sea Ecosystem Services
The deep sea is the vastest environment on Earth and provides many services and goods. Understanding the services and goods of deep-sea ecosystems would enable better resource governance and

Resources of the Sea Floor
In his Perspective, Rona reviews recent advances in knowledge of sea-floor resources. Knowledge is expanding from those minerals eroded from land--metals, gemstones, sand, and gravel--to those
Lessons Learned from Deep-Sea Mining
The first attempt to exploit deep-sea manganese nodules ended in failure as a result of the collapse of world metal prices, the onerous provisions imposed by the U. N. Conference on the Law of the
Biogeography and Ecological Setting of Indian Ocean Hydrothermal Vents
Most organisms found at these Indian Ocean vent fields have evolutionary affinities with western Pacific vent faunas, but a shrimp that ecologically dominates Indian Ocean vents closely resembles its Mid-Atlantic counterpart.
