Image Statement: Microbial phytoplankton, floating in the upper regions of the ocean, access sunlight to convert into oxygen, and absorb carbon dioxide that is then stored in a ‘carbon sink’ when their remains float down to the ocean bed. E. HUX plates attach themselves in a spherical form, then detach as they die. They are found in large concentrations known as blooms.
