The crimson tide is back.

Not Alabama’s football team, but the bioluminescent glow from the marine phenomenon known as the red tide.

“It’s intermittent and impossible to predict,” said Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist and bioluminescence expert Michael Latz, of the recurring phenomenon.

Red tides are caused by aggregations of dinoflagellates (marine plankton) including Ceratium falcatiforme and Lingulodinium polyedra. The latter is known for its bioluminescent displays, with waves or water movement causing the phytoplankton to glow neon blue at night.

Pictures posted recently on social media showed the eerie neon glow. According to several San Diego photographers who captured the effect, the bioluminescent algae bloom was captured along the shores from Torrey Pines State Beach to Ocean Beach.

The range of red tides also varies greatly. There was a really big one in October 2011 that extended up the entire Southern California coast from the Mexican border to Los Angeles.

“It’s usually every couple years, but sometimes it happens in sequential years,” said Latz of the red tide, noting there was a massive one along the San Diego coast in 1995, with a follow-up the next year. It’s happening again, as there was a red tide in 2018, and now another one this year, both starting near the end of May.

The Scripps scientist said the tide’s plankton go through developmental stages, much like the lifecycle of some insects.

“The organisms that produce this tide have a dormant life state called a cyst, that can sink down into the sediment and emerge later,” Latz said. “Local red tides maybe have an internal clock, and a year later they emerge into swimming cells. On a calm sunny day, they’re (plankton) attracted to the sunlight and they swim right up to the surface. If the water is strong enough to stimulate them, they’ll  produce bioluminescence.”

“It is of great scientific interest why that is occurring,” said Latz of the tidal algae blooms. “For me, the bioluminescence is really the spectacular part.”

Latz added scientists have successfully grown red tide plankton. “We just grow them for our research in labs so we can study them even when they’re not abundant on the coast here,” he said.

Scripps scientists continue to sample red tides when they occur to learn more about the genetic and metabolic characteristics of the organisms.

The waves propagate onshore, and their circulation patterns create dense accumulations of the red-tide organisms over the troughs of the waves. As you look out over the ocean, you'll see that the red tide typically appears in stripes parallel to shores. These are the internal wave troughs.

Bioluminescent displays are viewed best from a dark beach at least two hours after sunset, though visibility is not guaranteed. 

What’s also mysterious is the timing and duration of red tides, which have lasted anywhere from one week to a month or more. 

Latz said red tides can, but rarely do, contain a chemical neurotoxin that can be harmful to man and other mammals. “Some people who’ve gone out in the surf with them have had dizziness or asthma-like conditions,” he said. “It’s something we are interested in studying.”

There has also been a pronounced seasonality to red tides.

“Historically, they used to happen in early fall,” said Latz. “Then that shifted in the ’90s so that it also occurs in spring. Spring and fall are the times when it happens the most.”

How i got my wife back: Thanks to dr.orman980@yahoo.com for helping me get my wife back, My name is Collins and i have been married for 10 years. It all started in June, my wife started acting very weird, everything little thing, she gets angry at every little thing and then one day i suggested to her that we should go for counseling in order to make our marriage work but she bluntly refused and told me she wanted to move out. She finally moved out and i became very sad, i did not know what to do, a friend of mine at work told me of dr.orman980@yahoo.com and how he helped him when he had problems in his marriage. I wrote to the dr.orman980@yahoo.com and told him what i have been going through. He told me my wife had another man in her life and he would ensure i get her back. I did all the Prophet told me to do, he told me my wife would be back to me in less than 3days. My wife came home 2 days later, we talked about all that happened, she said she did not know what got over her. I forgave her and now we are back together. Thanks to dr.orman980@yahoo.com for bringing my wife back. Please contact dr.orman980@yahoo.com, he is a

great prophet and he is also reliable

Yes it is true that Dr Isikolo is the best to restore broken homes and relationships.

My name is Jojo Ivan and i was a client for DR ISIKOLO and i must tell you that he is a real spell caster. When i contacted this spell caster my boyfriend had left me for 2 years and i have always wanted him back to me. I met DR ISIKOLO to help me about a month ago and i have reconnected with my boyfriend. When my ex boyfriend left me it was turmoil for me. This became a disaster for me that i had a physiological trauma and my family were very worried about my health. After 2 years, I met DR ISIKOLO through a testimony also and he told me to calm myself that no matter what the problem is, he is well and ready to help anyone who comes to him. Just in 2 days, my ex called me and wanted to meet. I agreed and made preparations to meet him and he told me how he had felt guilty for what he did and he wanted me back. I praised DR ISIKOLO for his marvelous handiwork and i will recommend him to anyone who needs a spell caster. Contact him to help you and fast at his email isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also Whatsapp him on 2348133261196

I have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 2 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine my life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Dr Isikolo, so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in two days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after two days.

Thanks to Dr aluda for giving me the opportunity to test from his Power. I was wondering why most successful people talk more about him even in my neighborhood on how he has been bringing back ex-lovers and making them achieve their lost opportunities and being successful. I doubted some enough until when I tried his power last month via his email.Dr. aluda cast a reunion spell and brought back my “Jackky” after 7 months of our separation within 4days that he promised. Everything he did was like a movie in my eyes; it was so fast and effective. I felt a strong power in me when he was casting the spell which made me stronger in spirit to invite Jackky’s spirit back to me.I don’t have much to say, but to keep thanking him and telling people how I got the love of my life back and how.Please stop doubting and give him a try and see for yourself, open up your heart and focus on all the instructions from him and you will see results on your door post. Contact him today and see the miracle of his spell via aludaspelltemple@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on  393512872745....Amber Nicole From USA

Please read and also contact Dr Isikolo if you need a powerful love spell to fix your broken relationship.

I got a divorce from my husband when I was six months pregnant with my second child. We had been arguing and quarreling nonstop since the day our first child was conceived, no love nor trust from him anymore so he divorced me. And all these whiles, I have been trying all different means to get him back, I also tried some different spell casters here in the United States, but none of them could bring Richard back to me. It was only Dr Isikolo who guaranteed me an urgent 48 hours spell casting, and he assure me that my husband will be with me again. I am writing to offer my thanks and deep gratitude to you for keeping your promises, and for using your gifted and great powers to bring him back home. I was thrilled to know that you are specialized in reuniting Lovers. Thank you Sir, for helping me through the worst times of my life, for being such a great spell caster, and for giving me a love spell that has brought me so much joy in my marriage. My husband is back and promise never to leave me again. If you doubt his ability, trust me. You should take a chance. It pays off in ways you could never even imagine.

I am impressed. This is really happening to me. I have my ex husband back. My name is Veronica Adrian.

Please, hear my words if you are looking for a spell caster to help you, contact Dr Isikolo. He is the best spell caster to help you today. Two years ago, I and my husband had a huge quarrel which led to our divorce. It was hell for me and my baby boy that we had to move to another city. I became a single parent. I only met Dr Isikolo about a month ago when i told him about my situation and he told me not to worry about it. Within two days, my ex husband came back to me. It happened on a Tuesday morning when i received a call from home (my parents) that he has been looking for me. I accepted him to come to my place and apologized to me kneeling down in front of our son. I knew instantly that this man have helped me. I am a very happy woman with everything that happened in my life. If you want to contact a spell caster, meet Dr Isikolo and you will be surprised at the marvelous changes in your life.
