Marine snow measured in the twilight zone
Researchers measuring the amount of carbon that passes through the ocean's "twilight zone," found striking differences from two areas in the Pacific Ocean that could have a large effect on calculations of the amount of carbon stored in the deep ocean. An international team of researchers led by Ken Buesseler developed a new tool to accurately measure the carbon in the twilight zone, and used the tool to study the twilight zone near Hawaii and in the northwest Pacific Ocean.

The 'Elvis experiments'
On April 30, some 75 students and 23 teachers will use tubing, beakers and liquids of varying thickness to simulate the flow of blood in vessels to mimic some of the ways in which human blood travels 60,000 miles per day on its journey through the arteries, arterioles and capillaries and back through the venules and veins. The students will learn how diet can affect blood flow/pressure. Can Elvis be saved?
