[15-May-19] Are you interested in ideas that make a faraway topic like ocean color feel more personal? NASA ocean color scientists, Dr. Ivona Cetinic and Aimee Neeley demonstrate a hands-on activity on the transmission, absorption, and scattering of different colors of visible light. They show how the ocean's color is tied to its tiniest inhabitants, microscopic algae known as phytoplankton. The species diversity - and "personalities" - of these plankton are revealed through interactive resources. Follow along as Ivona and Aimee make ocean color "come to life" for students of any age.
