Are you amazed by the images of marine life on Blue Planet 2, by where these strange creatures live, and how we find them? This talk will show how we study deep-sea habitats, particularly complex environments such as submarine canyons, seamounts and hydrothermal vents, and how we combine different technologies (such as acoustics, high-definition video, chemical sensors and deep-sea robots) to map out the living space of deep-sea fauna, including hanging coral gardens.
