Bigelow Online Resource: Food Web

http://www.bigelow.org/foodweb/

NASA's ocean color satellite instruments are more sensitive than the human eye, surveying our global oceans in a few hours. But what are they sensing: Plants? Animals? Something else? Visit the Food web resource to continue exploring phytoplankton, food webs, microscopes, satellites and algal blooms.
