Tara Oceans mission reveals variations in plankton biodiversity

The Tara Oceans expedition shows the extent to which plankton in the oceans are affected by climate change. The findings not only help with climate change modelling, they inform about the fragility of the marine food chain.

The CTD Rosette. The CTD is an electronic instrument used in oceanography to collect water samples and record salinity (by measuring conductivity), temperature, and depth (by measuring pressure). The instrument is lowered on a hydrowire from the ship. Each cylinder (Niskin bottles) has lids at both ends. They are sent down open, and triggered to close electronically at the depth that water needs to be collected. This way, water can be sampled at many different depths throughout the water column.
