Sampling smooth mat


This is a transcript of a QuickTime movie (6.0 MB) recorded at Shark Bay in 2005. Stefan Leuko, from the Australian Centre for Astrobiology, samples a smooth mat in Shark Bay.

Transcript:

Layering appears, a green layer up here, then that brownish layer down there, a little top layer as well. I hope I can conserve this layer until I get back to the lab.

You’ve got a lot of sand underneath there. Yeah. You won’t need all that.

See that sort of green/brown colour right under the surface, that's where the chlorophyll is.
