Long term records obtained by in situ seabed observatories and repeated CTD casts show the presence of a high energetic environment in and around two cold water coral mound provinces at the SW RT margin and in the Gulf of Cadiz. In both areas cold water corals are present on the mounds, but the areas differ strongly in geological setting, as well as in sedimentology and hydrography. Measurements of near bed hydrodynamics as recorded with freefalling seabed observatories and water column… CONTINUE READING
