Video Exploring Australia's Seafloor

TLF ID A003969

This video, presented by marine ecologist Dr Rachel Przeslawski, explores how marine scientists make maps of the seafloor and what these maps are used for. Dr Przeslawski talks about her experiences as a marine scientist involved with making maps from ships and discovering the depth, shape and hardness of the sea floor. She explains different uses for such maps and tells us about her love of glass sponges, infauna and bioluminescent animals that live in the deep ocean.
