To understand the ocean from a chemical, physical and biological standpoint it’s incredibly important to gather as much information about the seawater itself.
Below the ocean surface, we know there is an abundance of marine organisms. But sometimes we get a glimpse of other amazing fauna at and above the ocean surface.
