Guyot Hall 220
Open to all Princeton students, staff, and faculty.
Event Description

In this lecture, Dr. Jaffe will illustrate his past use of acoustic and optical sensors that have led to a variety of insights into plankton 

distribution and behavior. Current developments will also be described, which include the use of machine learning algorithms to obtain taxonomic

identification of the relatively small plankton responsible for harmful algal blooms as well as the latest generation of “maker” underwater microscopes

that can measure currents, observe demersal plankton, and have promise to observe in situ chemotactic bacterial behavior.

Jules Jaffe is a research oceanographer with the Marine Physical Laboratory at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego
