NSF, NASA scientists explore ocean's 'twilight zone' to uncover links between carbon and plankton
Description: Equipped with advanced underwater robotics and an array of analytical instrumentation, a team of scientists will set sail for the northeastern Pacific Ocean this August. The researchers' mission is to study the life and death of microscopic plankton, tiny plant and animal organisms that play a critical role in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and the oceans. More than 100 scientists and crew members will embark from Seattle, Washington, for the Export Processes in the Ocean from Remote Sensing (EXPORTS) oceanographic campaign.
