This Cape Farewell video clip shows scientists back at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, analysing the samples of phytoplankton and zooplankton taken in the Arctic, identifying species and counting their abundance.
Activity G - Plankton analysis is based on the images provided in the presentation. This presentation includes both images to identify zooplankton together with the photographs required for the analysis. In this activity the students model the way that scientists collaborate to build up a data set.
Notes on the activities and their use, with the video clip in lessons, are given in the Teachers’ Guidance.
