Chesapeake Biological Laboratory
Hongsheng Bi is a fisheries Oceanographer specializing in the fine scale spatial distributions of different marine organisms and their trophic interactions. Hongsheng deploys advanced optical imaging systems and high resolution sonar imaging systems to quantify the spatial distributions and overlap of plankton, forage fish, and jellyfish. He is particularly interested in understanding jellyfish dynamics and their interactions with other trophic levels. Hongsheng’s group operate a towed zooplankton imaging system (PlanktonScope), two adaptive resolution imaging sonar (ARIS) systems, and a time-resolved Tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
