The objective of this project is the biodiversity in abyssal basins of the southeast Atlantic., contributing to the study of the distribution of benthic organisms from pole to pole and to investigate their origin and relationships.

Until now, two expeditions have taken place on board of the German research vessel "Meteor" which led an international team of scientists into the deep sea off the African west coast.
