The overall goal or this project was to explore for and document the fluorescence or marine organisms, primarily on the seafloor, but also in the water column. We wish to determine the nature and distribution, both geographic and taxonomic, of the effect. The information gained has potential application to mapping and assessment of the sea floor, to studies of fundamental processes in marine biology, and to discovery of novel fluorescing proteins.
