Ronnie Glud and Wenjie Xiao participated in the 3'rd Shanghai Deep Sea Biogeochemistry conference at Shanghai University.
Ronnie Glud visited Shanghai Jiao Tong University and gave a talk.
Ronnie Glud participated in DOME (Deep Sea Microbiomes & Ecosystems) workshop - a large UN research project under UN Ocean Decade.
Ronnie Glud participated in panel discussion in the Worlds Lecturette Organization - where top researchers discussed the impinging challenges: Climate change and marine negative CO2 emission.
Several members of the HADAL team participated in cruise with UMITAKA MARU to the Japan Trench and Sagami Bay

Testing our new mini sediment lander in Odense Harbor before cruise to the Japan Trench

Quite a lot of HADAL people participated in the ASLO - Aquatic sciences meeting 2023 in Mallorca
Finally our mooring system was deployed in the Japan Trench - a few years delayed because of corona!

Leah and Lisbeth presented our HADAL center at the open day at SDU.
Interesting day with lots of people asking lots of questions!
2nd price in the DGRF photo competition!!
Congratulation to Mathias Middelboe - who has taken the picture of a virus infected bacteria!

Cruise to South Sandwich Trench with R/V Polarstern
- wawes up to 12 m and extremely hard winds made this cruise a challenge! But we still managed - in the end to get some very interesting deep-sea sediment!
4 HADAL members joined the Umitaka Cruise to the Japan Trench
You can see pictures from the cruise here:
2 members of the HADAL team joined the cruise with DSSV Pressure Drop to 11 deep trenches in the North Pacific Ocean
Check out what is happening on the Sonne Cruise to Aleutian Trench just now - where 3 HADAL people are participating:
2 HADAL people(C Schauberger and JP Balmonte ) took part in cruise in the North Atlantic with
American research vessel R/V Endeavor
Getting the mooring system for the Umitaka Cruise ready!
Exiting workshop in the HADAL group with colleagues from Austria
Visit from good colleagues from Bremen. Preparing landers for our next cruise to Aleutian Trench.
Thank you Axel and Volker - and Morten who took a small break from his maternity leave.
Workshop in our hadal group
Container sent to Japan for our cruise! Which has unfortunately now been cancelled due to covid
Press release: Huge amounts of mercury found in the hadal trenches-
follow this link:
A few days ago the "new" gamma counter arrived from Japan.
The lead shield weighing close to 2 ton has found its place in the hadal room, and the detector is ready to start measuring.
We can now measure a number of radionucleotides, including 210Pb and 137Cs.
Thereby we can quantify the age of sediment deposited in the seabed.
Welcome to Kazumasa Oguri
Finaly, Kazumasa Oguri succeeded coming to Denmark with his family.
He should have joined us already 1st of February - but bureaucracy and corona made things difficult!
But now Kazumasa has said good-bye to Japan, where he worked at Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology for many years, and we are looking forward to getting him onboard.
Just now we are in the process of establishing our new lander hall. Here we will store our equipment and prepare for cruises.
We are very exited to get going...
