Ceratium Bloom

After some strong surf and rough conditions, we had a window to clean the cameras this week in some very poor visibility. With the cameras clean and running well, we are capturing a bloom of ceratium amidst the many, many sand particles suspended by the swell. Below is a view from the SPCP2 showing just how many ceratium are showing up in the camera. These were filtered to a size range of 0.05 mm to 0.15 mm with an aspect ratio of 0.1 to 0.3.
