Micro-plants and mixing: The movements of 3D-printed phytoplankton

Printed phytoplankton

There is estimated to be over 30,000 different species of phytoplankton in our world’s waterways. Too often computers use simple shapes such as spheres to model them where in reality, phytoplankton come in all different shapes and sizes! They also have a number of different mechanisms to help them survive in different environments, particularly ones with different levels of turbulent mixing.
