Prochlorococcus

New study from our lab featured on NPR

With so much attention on California’s drought and the incoming El Niño, the anomalies in California’s warmer ocean temperatures may simply seem like something to enjoy. Surfers and swimmers rejoice as they jump in with a wetsuit-free splash. Reminiscent of tropical beaches, Southern California’s ocean temperatures have been unusually tepid.
