Fragile Plankton Up Ahead

Researchers and crew aboard the R/V Laurence M. Gould recover a new Large Area Plankton Imaging System (LAPIS) after a test in Antarctic waters in March 2006. Designed by biologist Larry Madin, research associate Erich Horgan, and WHOI engineers, LAPIS captures images of fragile, gelatinous plankton while they drift hundreds of meters deep without producing turbulence that disrupts their behavior.
