Life in the deep sea requires turbulent mixing and advective transporting water flows for the supply of nutrients. However, because of the harsh environmental constraints in the deep sea, detailed quantitative measurements are scarce. Recent high-resolution measurements demonstrate that the deep Mediterranean Sea waters are far from stagnant, even though temperature variations over a day and 100 m in depth are of the order of 0.0001°C. An innovative 3D-mooring structure was used supporting 550 highly sensitive temperature sensors.
