Inspiration and science story

This design is based on stunning photography by Dr Callum Whyte, a marine scientist at the Scottish Association for Marine Science.

In Callum's own words: My job at the Scottish Association for Marine Science in Scotland is to try and understand the thousands of species of microscopic algae known as phytoplankton. Plankton because they drift through the seas like planets drift through space and phyto because they use light to photosynthesize their food.

Well, without these tiny little organisms, the world would be a sorry place to live. Together, they produce half of all the oxygen we breathe. They also produce half of all the food on the planet and lie at the base of nearly all marine food webs. If that wasn't enough, they draw large amounts of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, out of the atmosphere and lock it away in deep-sea sediments.

As they produce their food from sunlight, we call them primary producers and the amount of food they create is primary production. As you can imagine, knowing how much food they will produce and what will happen to them as the earth warms up is vitally important.

One of the areas that is experiencing a lot of change and warming faster than the average is the Arctic. Warmer water temperatures mean less sea ice, particularly in the summer. Less ice means more sunlight will reach the surface of the sea. That might seem like a good thing given that phytoplankton need light to grow, but like all things in the natural world, it's not that simple.

The species that have evolved to live under the shade of the ice don't actually like too much light. In fact, they can get sunburned just like us and just like us when we get badly sunburned, they don't feel like doing much. By Dr Callum Whyte, Biological Oceanographer at the Scottish Association for Marine Science.
