About Us

Welcome to Microcosms!


Borne as the work of the Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) class offered at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, Microcosms represents a collection of images taken and curated by students past and present. As evidenced by the breadth of coverage, SEM technology is applicable across disciplines and allows for analysis of samples at a truly micro level.
