  • The most common sources of planktonic bioluminescence are dinoflagellates, copepods, euphausiids, ostracods and gelatinous zooplankton. Each of these has very distinctive flash characteristics that make them easy to distinguish from each other. Using an intensified video camera mounted on a mid-water submersible we have developed the Spatial Plankton Analysis Technique (SPLAT) that identifies and maps the 3-dimensional microscale distribution patterns of bioluminescent plankton. The unique… CONTINUE READING
