Title: 2004 Deep-Scope Expedition: Who Has the Light? PDF
Url: http://oceanexplorer.noaa.gov/explorations/04deepscope/background/edu/...
Creator: Goodwin, Mel
Publisher: United States. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Description: This National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration classroom activity explores bioluminescence. This PDF addresses: Which deep-sea organisms are capable of bioluminescence, and how does this ability benefit these organisms? In this activity, students will: compare and contrast chemiluminescence, bioluminescence, fluorescence, and phosphorescence, explain ways in which the ability to produce light may be useful to deep-sea organisms, and explain how scientists may be able to use light-producing processes in deep-sea organisms to observe these organisms in a new way. Several links to related online resources are provided.
