DSM Observer is a free online resource for deep sea mining professionals, providing access to the latest news and information about the industry in a single place. Our monthly e-newsletter features updates on technology, business news, deep sea science, environmental issues and policy. A particular focus of our resource is the development of The Mining Code through the work of the International Seabed Authority (ISA).
DSM Observer is published by Blackbeard Biologic: Science and Environmental Advisors. Support for this project was provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts through a grant to the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences.
