There is no light in these depths: they make it with their own phosphorescence.
As on the previous night, the sea was aglow with phosphorescence.
The tepid sea-water, with here and there tiny globules of phosphorescence, washed about his ankles and knees.
But it was not there alone that the phosphorescence of the sea was visible.
At very low pressures part of the phosphorescence disappears, while the upper portion breaks up into two patches (fig. 27).
The water was alive with phosphorescence that sparkled like gems around the blades.
The phosphorescence on the water had been the first warning: this murmur the second.
From time immemorial, the phosphorescence of the sea has been observed by navigators.
But we must now return to the other questions that have been started in relation to phosphorescence in animals.
phosphorescence can not be produced with ease by the spark in air.
phosphorescence phos·pho·res·cence (fŏs'fə-rěs'əns)
Persistent emission of light following exposure to and removal of incident radiation.
Emission of light without burning or by very slow burning without appreciable heat, as from the slow oxidation of phosphorous.
