Summary

The SEDCI science plan includes twelve deep-sea research expeditions that will be conducted through 2019, in addition to ten complementary research projects focused on seafloor mapping, habitat suitability modeling, species identification, environmental monitoring and data mining. While we acknowledge that this science plan is a living document that is subject to change, we hope that this framework will facilitate research efforts amongst all of us, and thereby improve management of deep-sea coral ecosystems throughout the region.
