Abstract : This project studies the fundamental relationships between predator macrozooplankton (i.e. euphausiids and copepods) and prey (i.e. phytoplankton) and their inter-relationship via a combination of optical serial sectioning and acoustic tracking. This program is an augmentation of our other ocean optics support from ONR and is aimed at making a practical realizable, system to measure multispectral image scatter from underwater serial section images.
