SeaFlow on Youtube

With the novel continuous measurements of phytoplankton abundance and composition performed by SeaFlow, marine biologists now have the ability to explore phytoplankton dynamics at a spatial scale from a few meters to thousands of kilometers. Here is an example of SeaFlow data showing the distribution of Synechococcus populations in the North Pacific Ocean (blue = low, red = high cell concentrations) using Google Earth (video courtesy of Francois Ribalet).
