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
