Cold-Water Corals and Carbonate Mounds

Carbonate mounds are important archives of ‘Life’ in a wide variety of settings, from cool-water to warm-water, shallow to deep and even extreme environments. They are key-players in the coupled bio-geosphere and form an important piece of the puzzle when studying the global carbonate factory. Furthermore, they serve as an archive providing insights into the climatic and oceanographic variability at shallow, intermediate and deep water depths.
