Economic value and protection of the deep sea
“Economic value and protection of the deep sea”
Invited Visiting Professors: Daniela Zeppilli

Many of these metals are used in electronics, and since terrestrial supplies are diminishing, deep-sea mineral resources are likely to be extensively mined within the next few decades.
