RV Bellows Microbiology/Shelf Sampling Cruise - July 2012

DAY 2 - July 9 (10:33 am)

The sea gives up a beautiful fish for us. Offshore blue water here off Panama City.  The radiometer shows PAR, UVA and UVB penetrating much further here.  Much clearer than the water south of Pensacola, even offshore of the shelf break.  This trend seems to be consistent, south of Pensacola influenced more by fresh waters to the west, and offshore tropical waters coming up close in on the shelf south of Panama City and Destin.
