Bioluminescence = Kewl

Can you remember the designation of the little microbes that cause a ship’s wake to glow?  I know Lubber’s Line over at Hundreds of Fathoms can tell you it is dinoflagellate.  I know, because he beat me to detailing the phenomena of “milky sea”, and new findings regarding it reported here.  Who knew there was a whole website devoted to bioluminescence?  He did.

Recommend the biochemistry be studied for development of a dyemarker useful after sunset.

PBS, thanks for the link. Bioluminescence is a cool topic that I've been wanting to write something on. Didn’t realize it could occur on such a large scale until I ran across the “Milk Sea” story.
