Even if we haven’t seen as many blue whales as we would like the water has been fun and a great way to get away from the heat, we’ve seen the occasional humpback, some blue whales, fin whales, common dolphins every day, and an amazing sighting of a Bryde’s whale cow/calf pair!

Ocean Life from the View of a Microscope | James S.  

Ocean Life from the View of a Microscope

There is a lot going on in the ocean when you look beyond the waves and the whales (and other animals) in the ocean, microscopic life flourishes underneath the surface. Over the next few weeks, the Aquarium of the Pacific will be talking with researchers working on the NOAA ship, Ronald H. Brown. These scientists are participating in ongoing research to measure and monitor changes in the world oceans over time. Traveling from Durban, South Africa to Goa, India, they will be collecting samples of the water so that they can describe the ocean chemistry and biology that they are observing.
