Up in the Air - VOC Production by Phytoplankton

Student: Alex Mann

District/Region: South Shore District

Event: 2010 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 8 - Centre Consolidated School

Very little is understood about the relationship between phytoplankton and the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) they produce. It has been reported that the quantity and type of VOCs varies from species to species, although other variables likely play a role. This relationship was studied in the laboratory as well as through analyzed field samples.
