This year the Blackrock Castle Observatory teamed up with the Embassy of France in Ireland to bring the amazing selection of images from the TARA Exhibition.

Tara Oceans Exhibition, A Worldwide Portrait of Marine Plankton

Tara Oceans Exhibition is the very first attempt to make a global study of marine plankton.

“Studying plankton is like taking the pulse of the planet” says Dr Emmanuel Reynaud, from UCD, who points out that scientists are hoping “to better understand the functioning and diversity of marine life and its response to climate change”.
