The sea floor may be of future interest, including black and white smokers coming from volcanic and hydrothermal systems that could be a source of power feeding the populations on both side of the Atlantic.

In addition, many shipping routes may open up with global warming creating safe northwest and northeast Arctic passages.

Our oceans are of high importance and continue to be studied.
