Picture of the Day for 27 April 2002

Two specimens from the CTD bottle samples collected at station 48 have been stained with acridine orange and magnified 200X under epifluorescent illumination aboard the N.B. Palmer. The pill-like organism is a Corethron, a 60 um diatom, and the star-like one has not yet been identified (Photo by Philip Alatalo).
