Moonlight and Ice: A zooplankton Nocturne

Thanks to the support of the UK's PRS Foundation, I have been able to realise a new work, Moonlight and Ice: A Zooplankton Nocturne.

The work, the result of a collaboration with Dr. Laura Hobbs from the Scottish Association for Marine Science, focuses on her emergent research into the behaviour of Arctic zooplankton in the winter night. The zooplankton, perhaps due to diminished ice cover in the winter months shows indications of adapting to lunar cycles, by deep diving during periods of the full moon. This behaviour suggests an impact upon the food chain, and further direct impact of climate change in the Arctic.
