Optical Alchemy: The Magic of Underwater Fluorescence

Dr. Charles Mazel 

There is an unexpected world of vibrant color in the underwater world that cannot be seen in sunlight or with the white lights we normally carry on night dives. This is the world of fluorescence, a completely natural effect that holds beauty and surprise, but that is almost always hidden beneath ‘normal’ light. Organisms that appear brightly colored in daylight may not fluoresce at all, while others that you would pass by – or can’t even see – come alive in a startling saturated display. This presentation will be an introduction to the phenomenon of fluorescence, the variety of fluorescence in the underwater world, how you can see and photograph it, and what it might mean for science and for the fluorescing organisms themselves.


Charles Mazel, PhD, is the pioneer of the modern era of night diving to explore fluorescence, including development of the equipment to see and record the phenomenon. He is the founder of NIGHTSEA, the first company to provide lights and camera accessories for underwater fluorescence, and an Associate Member of the Boston Sea Rovers. He has conducted extensive scientific research on fluorescence and the optics of the underwater world, including the first fluorescence exploration dives to as deep as 3,000’ in a manned submersible. Prior to founding NIGHTSEA Mazel had extensive experience in deep and shallow water marine survey, marine archaeology, and scientific R&D. His extensive time on boats provided the experience that motivated him to write that classic work, ‘Heave Ho! My Little Green Book of Seasickness’.
