Phytoplankton The Flash of the Ocean

A recent study from Princeton University shows that phytoplankton does float from a part of the ocean towards “almost any other place on the globe” in lesser than ten years.

Researchers made use of a model that shadowed phytoplankton no matter where it headed, which is different from all the other models that concentrate on movement in a particular area. It is necessary to keep in mind that the results solely record organisms (and debris) that cannot control their own movements.

The researchers were likely to verify the time scale of the phytoplankton movements by comparing the model into actual samples, including the rubber ducks which were missing at deep sea in 1992 to 2011 tsunami that deposited radioactive elements throughout the Pacific Ocean.
