Micro-plants and mixing: the turbulent life of plankton
Micro-plants and mixing: the turbulent life of plankton

Plankton are the microscopic plants and animals that inhabit the world’s ocean, lakes and rivers. These amazing and often overlooked organisms not only act as the base for the ocean’s foodwebs but also produce a majority of our atmospheric oxygen. They also have the ability to regulate our climate and as such, have helped reduce the impact of climate change.

In this talk, Russell Arnott, Doctoral Student, will introduce you to the wondrous world of plankton by showcasing some of their weird and wonderful abilities while tying it into his current research here at the University of Bath.
