Abstract:

Our long term goal is to understand bioluminescent plankton spatial and temporal distributions, and how these distributions affect plankton sensory interactions. Current interest is in how these interactions might be involved in thin layers. The central objective was to measure bioluminescence in association with thin layers, since this has never been attempted, which required 1 measuring the vertical distribution of excitable bioluminescence across thin layers and 2 determining the plankton species responsible for bioluminescence in the vicinity of thin layers.
