OMARC (Ocean Margin Deep-Water Research Consortium)

OMARC was created from projects from FP5, OMARC is to contribute to complete the inventory of mineral and biological resources of the European Ocean Margins in view of conducting safer and environment friendly exploration and exploitation of deep-water resources. In particular it will bring new elements on environmental aspects of deep-sea rich bearing hydrocarbon provinces and highly exploited     fishery zone. The detail objective of the cluster is to improve through multidisciplinary Margin research the understanding on gas-hydrates, submarine slope stability, quaternary evolution of the European margin, cold-water coral reefs, and seafloor and sub-seafloor biosphere activity.
