The EU-funded Horizon2020 ATLAS Project has published its compendium of results, detailing the key achievements of the four-year project.
The compendium, which captures the ATLAS team’s key outputs, results and activities, contains numerous case studies, statistics and insights from the project, and outlines the steps required to further the project's amibitious goals through future research.
The ATLAS project is the largest assessment of deep-sea Atlantic ecosystems undertaken to date. ATLAS scientists have used the latest technology and developed new methods and models, including environmental DNA approaches and innovative low-cost camera systems, to search water and sediment samples for known and undiscovered deep-sea species. ATLAS discovered new benthic communities and species, developing a knowledge base that has contributed to international policies and strategies. This knowledge ensures that deep-sea Atlantic resources are managed effectively, and lays the foundations for future Blue Growth.
