In-Situ Shadowgraph Imaging
Various imaging systems are producing complex data that improve our understanding of physical and biological coupling in the ocean. In-situ shadowgraph imaging is one sampling technique that captures detailed biological information for a wide range of plankton with differing body compositions (e.g., gelatinous to crustacean) in their natural orientations, as well as small-scale physical changes. When combined with rapidly advancing computer vision methods and high-resolution oceanographic observations, shadowgraph imagery holds promise for generating new discoveries in ocean science that are only limited by our creativity in asking new questions.
