Objectif

Dans le cadre du programme européen HERMES, nous avons réalisé la campagne MEDECO dont l'objectif principal était d'étudier et de comparer, en préconisant une approche pluridisciplinaire, la structure et la dynamique de divers écosystèmes profonds, situés au coeur de différents contextes géologiques de la Méditerranée et d'évaluer le rôle des facteurs environnementaux sur la composition, la diversité et la biomasse des communautés animales et microbiennes. Par notre démarche écosystémique nous souhaitions comprendre les relations entre la biodiversité et le fonctionnement des écosystèmes profonds méditerranéens, suivre la réponse de ces écosystèmes aux changements globaux et proposer une projection à plus ou moins long terme de leur évolution future.

L'utilisation du ROV Victor 6000 et de différents équipements d'observations et de mesures nous a permis de concrétiser ces objectifs. La campagne s'est articulée en deux legs : le 1er leg a traversé la Méditerranée d'ouest en est pour étudier respectivement les communautés benthiques sédimentaires du canyon du Var, les récifs de coraux profonds de la marge calabraise et des cold seeps associés aux structures compressives de la ride méditerranéenne. Le 2ème leg a été exclusivement dédié à l'étude des écosystèmes des cold seeps du delta profond du Nil et de l'arc calabrais.

La campagne s'est organisée de façon à suivre les objectifs du programme HERMES qui visaient :
1) la description et la quantification des "natural drivers" (facteurs géologiques, hydrologiques et chimiques) qui contrôlent les écosystèmes des marges ;
2) la caractérisation et la quantification de la biodiversité, des bactéries à la mégafaune et la compréhension du fonctionnement de ces écosystèmes ;
3) une première étude de leur dynamique incluant la biologie et microbiologie des espèces-clés des écosystèmes.
