A unique feature of the C-DEBI community is our spatial distribution across the United States and beyond which provides opportunity for public dissemination of knowledge of the field. We strive not only to reach those already involved in the field, but of equal importance, those who are not familiar with the complexities and importance of the deep subseafloor biosphere.

C-DEBI / Delaware SeaGrant 15-second Science Videos
In partnership with the National Science Foundation-funded Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations (C-DEBI), Delaware Sea Grant is expanding its collection of 15 Second Science videos and other multimedia to include resources about the deep biosphere and sub-seafloor life. Below the ocean floor lives a tremendous amount of life, none of which is visible to naked eye or even the run-of-the-mill microscope. Here in the subsurface, we find bacteria, archaea, and fungi by the trillions! Tune in for 15 Second Science segments, longer Dive Deeper videos, and even some virtual reality videos, discussing microbes, dark energy, and the tools and techniques used to explore this extreme environment.
