Abstract:

We seek to gain a quantitative understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, and optical dynamics that structure the planktonic ecosystem on the scales of the organisms. By quantifying the variability of the organisms and their environment at the scales that the organisms live their lives, we will gain insight into the dynamics that create structure and influence the function of the planktonic ecosystem.
