Description
Noorvegian margin datasets (Vicking and ARK) were part of the Hermes project. The objective was to provide an comprehensive and integrative study of the faunal communities of the different habitats of the Haakon Mosby Mud Volcano and a first description of communities of the Storrega pockmarks. This study was combined with microbial (MPI) and chemical (MPI, Ifremer) characterisation of the same habitats.
