Illuminating the Deep - an Interactive DVD

Following the annual MAR-ECO Project meeting in 2006, a film was made to summarise the research efforts and results thus far.

The film is available on a DVD. It is divided into chapters, each treating a different topic.

Viewers may choose to view the film in its entirety (almost 1 hour) or select particular chapters.
