Photo of the week:

During the Beam Trawl Survey a SPI camera makes photographs of the sediment by penetrating it. The black area in the upper part is the water column. Underneath is the sediment, the lighter colour (upper layer) being sediment that contains oxygen-and life-. The darker sediment contains less oxygen.
