PLANKTON PLANET

_______________

Plankton is the basis of the food chain for entire ocean and beyond. It produces more than 50% of oxygen that we breath. It is also a major climate regulator, absorbing manmade CO2 emissions. Ranging from viruses to animals, the biodiversity of plankton is vast, largely unexplored, and little understood.  The planet’s changing climate and ocean acidification are already impacting plankton populations.

Plankton Planet’s mission is to provide the data necessary to enhance our understanding of our evolving planet at this critical juncture. By combining this dynamic biological information about plankton populations with new models of our ocean’s systems, we will be able to better predict changes to our blue planet…..Read more
