Red Tide

This April 28, 2013 photo released by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution shows a robotic device being deployed to detect red tide in the Gulf of Maine. Red tide monitoring is going high-tech with a robotic “laboratory in a can.” A garbage can-sized canister was deployed in late April in the ocean waters off southern Maine to collect and transmit data about toxin-producing algae blooms, known as red tides, that show up in the Gulf of Maine each spring.(AP Photo/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution & Northeastern University, Isaac Rosenthal)
