Benthic Chamber Applications

We are putting together a library of applications listing research papers that have utilized benthic chambers in a wide range of environments with an equally wide range of research objectives.  As we scour the literature for more examples of how benthic chambers are being used around the world, we would love to hear from you and learn about the kind of work that you do with benthic chambers!

Below is a list showing a wide range of applications that benthic chambers have been used for.  Click on any application to learn more about the work.
