Attack of the Sea Foam, It’s Not Whale Sperm


Neatorama brought my attention to the above video. Flooding along the the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia left behind barrels for frothy fun. But wait before you go playing it.  Sea foam comes from the turbulent mixing of storms and flooding.  This mixing of impurities in the ocean like salts, chemicals, pollution, dead plants, decomposed fish, normal seaweed excretions, copepod poo, and just about everything fantastic in the ocean creates bubbles that stick together and form the foam. And by the way…sea foam is not whale sperm (see first video below)
