In this episode Mike and Samantha are joined by Bianca Cruz, an ASU PhD working to understand the role that very small phytoplankton play slowing down climate change. Join us in taking a look at the life of a marine microbial ecolocgsty, on the deep ocean and what goes into marine science. We then talk about the role marine snow, phytoplankton poop, plays in the sequestration of CO2 from the atmosphere to the bottom of the ocean. We take an in-depth look at how climate change will effect marine snow, and how the size of phytoplankton are drivers in understanding where marine snow is. Lastly we talk about the very interesting, and evolutionary conundrum, of prochlorococcus. Sunscreen is bad!
