This movie reviews an interactive 3D simulation of Northern Ireland's seabed, on display in the Ocean Exploration Centre in Titanic Belfast. The simulation allows users to freely explore the seabed and some of it's fascinating features, such a shipwrecks, giant sand waves, a submerged lagoon, and shows how these features are mapped by modern survey technologies.

There have only been two manned descents to the very bottom nearly 7 miles deep of pure darkness. Not only is it a fascinating place and wonder of the planet, but it's also shrouded in mystery. Since so few have been down there, and only a hand full of cameras have recorded the bottom, what creatures live at the bottom is one o...
Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...

This movie demonstrates how a sample of seabed sediment core can be extracted by lowering from a ship a vibrocorer to the seabed. This particular animation demonstrates GeoCorer 6000 being lowered from Ireland's Marine Institute vessel, the Celtic Explorer. This animation was funded by Titanic Belfast's Ocean Exploration Centre, and forms part of their seabed simulation display, open to the public
