Paper presented at the Tenth ISOPE Ocean Mining and Gas Hydrates Symposium, September 22–26, 2013
Paper Number: ISOPE-M-13-066
... ABSTRACT Deep-sea mining of polymetallic nodules is expected to cause directly and indirectly disturbance of the abyssal benthic ecosystem. Acquisition of baselines data of each mining area is essential for evaluation of the environmental impacts as well as for development of site-specific...

Paper Number: ISOPE-M-13-089
... ABSTRACT Although not yet commercially practiced, deep-sea mining is under development for metalliferous sediments, massive sulphides and polymetallic nodules. Ore extraction is to be achieved by sediment suction, rock cutting and nodule collection, and transport from the seafloor...

... Abstract: The paper describes the application of mesoscale and large scale models in order to simulate the impact of deep-sea mining sediment discharges on the marine environment. The modelling efforts are crosslinked with the experiments of the TUSCII research group which provide supporting...
