Diversity of hydrothermal systems on the Portuguese seafloor

An untapped potential for the understanding of deep-sea mineralization


Por Ágata Alveirinho Dias (Institute of Science and Environment, USJ, Macau / Instituto Dom Luiz, FCUL, Portugal).

Abstract: Several hydrothermal fields (HFs) have been identified within the Portuguese EEZ and many more are yet to be discovered, particularly when we consider the extended continental shelf, an area that covers up to 2.4 million km2. The majority of these HFs are located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR), where most segments are under the influence of the Azores’ mantle anomaly and the triple junction between the Eurasian, Nubian and North American plates. The first HF was discovered in 1997 (Lucky Strike) whereas the last one (Luso) was discovered in 2018. They revealed a variety of geological settings (e.g., on ridge axis, detachment faults and/or under interference of Azores volcanic anomalies), host rocks (mafic and/or ultramafic) and mineralization processes. A summary of the different types of hydrothermal fields will be presented, with a focus on lower-temperature and less vigorous fields, such as Luso, Menez Gwen and Saldanha. This diversity of HFs makes MAR an ideal laboratory for comparative studies of seafloor hydrothermal systems, which can advance our knowledge of their origin, dynamics and mineralization processes.

Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organic matter in the soil.

The objective of this course is to acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

Science is increasingly more present in our everyday decisions, with a fundamental role in global problems. Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge.

The course aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.

This 5-day course offers to the participants a light microscopy course focusing on fluorescence microscopy techniques applied to the detection of proteins and glycans in tissue samples and cell cultures.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

The objective of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

The objective of this course is to provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity. This includes the selection of functional traits and calculation of Functional Diversity Indexes.
