Abstract:

The long-term goal is to advance our understanding of the ecology of bioluminescent organisms and the mechanisms governing the temporal and spatial variability of bioluminescence in the coastal ocean. With improvements in technology, finer-scale resolution and concurrent physical, chemical and biological data over relevant scales will enable better predictability of bioluminescence events in the nearshore coastal ocean.
