I am Martin, a Masters student at the University of Glasgow studying Marine and Freshwater Biology. I focus on deep sea ecology and am currently working at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban. There I work on what we call the Extended Ellett Line, a series of hydrographical stations stretching from the southern tip of Iceland down to the Sound of Mull in the west of Scotland. This is a time series effort that has been ongoing from the mid 1970s from which I am interested in a specific station near Anton Dohrn seamount. I look at sled tow samples of the seabed from around 2200m deep around the base of the seamount and compare the community composition of animals over the years.
