A recent report shed light on what causes Plankton in the North Atlantic blooms. It has been claimed by researchers in the journal Science that the swirling currents on the ocean's surface are the reason behind the tiny colorful plants blooming in every spring.
Earlier, it was believed that sun rays could be the reason behind the same, but a research led by Amala Mahadevan of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, has claimed eddies to be behind the same.
“Every undergraduate who takes an introductory oceanography course learns about the ecological and climate significance of the North Atlantic Bloom—as well as what causes it”, said the authors of the research, which has surprised one and all. It is also believed that this research has also shed light on the reason behind the patchy appearance of a bloom. It is believed that sheer determination and hard work from researchers unraveled a lot about the North Atlantic Ocean.
It seems that there is a lot to be made known about oceans and this research is certainly a refreshing one. It is known that Ocean plankton has a key role to play in absorbing greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, and that’s why it has always intrigued researchers.
