MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Bennett Spencer Lambert attaches a power and data cable that connects instruments on the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory with the scientists on the mainland. Instruments at the observatory include the Imaging FlowCytobot, which takes high-resolution images of large-celled phytoplankton that are then digitally classified and uploaded to the web. The project, led by WHOI biologist Heidi Sosik, has created the first long-term record of plankton dynamics, information that will help scientists understand how the marine ecosystem responds to environmental changes.
