Nature has a way of making us realize how incredibly small we are in the grand scheme of things. The closer we look, the more we realize that some of the scientific principles we take for granted can act in amazingly bizarre ways. It’s even better when we can capture these instances in photos and videos. Here is a list of 5 astounding natural phenomena caught on film.
Sea foam can be created in large quantities for a few reasons, the most common of which are algal blooms. When massive amounts of autotrophs appear offshore, the resulting decayed algal matter can create foam as it is churned in the surf. Most of the time, this foam is harmless.
As a matter of fact, sea foam is a good indicator of normalcy in the surrounding ocean ecosystem. Sometimes, though, large amounts of sea foam can create a driving hazard.
