Also included in "Phytopia" are three-dimensional cell models and a virtual microscope tool for viewing organisms at various magnifications, under various epifluorescence techniques, and by scanning electron microscopy. An interactive satellite image tool helps students understand seasonal changes in environmental factors (sunlight, ocean temperature, wind and ocean currents) that affect phytoplankton productivity and ocean health. These images focus on five specific regions: the Gulf of Maine, U.S. west coast, British Isles, and South Africa. The "Bloom Activation Tool" challenges users to create a Gulf of Maine phytoplankton bloom by choosing sun, temperature, and wind conditions.
