Tag: Bioluminescent

Using bioluminescent bacteria, Dr. Edie Widder has made pollution that is relatively invisible to the naked eye visible to us. This is valuable to see just how polluted waterways are as you’ll see in the video above where she takes a sample and shows dead spots in the bioluminescent bacteria.

Phytoplankton have a unique ability to glow in the water when a lot of it is gathered together by the flowing tides. This video here shows this event happening while some people surf right on top of it. Pretty awesome. [via]
