WHOI’s Ocean Encounters: Small but Mighty

May 22 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Small but Mighty

Microscopic marine life and its outsized role in the ocean

Microbes and plankton may be small, but they have a big part to play in shaping our planet. The ocean’s smallest inhabitants form the base of marine food webs, help regulate global climate, and may hold the secrets to the origins of life on Earth.
Join us as we explore “invisible” ocean life and its profound and far-reaching impacts.
