Arctic Perspectives: Fran Ulmer discusses the Arctic
John Dabiri, Stephen Monosmith, Jeff Koseff and graduate students have studied how brine shrimp move in the lab to better understand the impact plankton and organisms like krill have on ocean waters. It turns out, when tiny organisms move en masse, they churn the water more than expected and might be critical to ocean dynamics.
