Bioluminescent Phytoplankton Glowing waves in California Tauheed Ahmad July 4, 2016 Amazing & Incredible 1818 Islands, Taiwanese photographer Will Ho stumbled onto an incredible stretch of beach covered in millions of bioluminescent phytoplankton. These tiny organisms glow similarly to fireflies and tend to emit light when stressed, such as when wave’s crash or when they are otherwise agitated. While the phenomenon and its chemical mechanisms have been identified for some time, biologists have only recently begun to understand the reasons behind it. You can see a few more of Ho’s photographs over on Flickr. Originally posted 2014-09-28 17:56:28.
