The International Nannoplankton Association


Welcome to the INA. This is an association of scientists worldwide who have an interest in living or fossil nannoplankton - including coccolithophores, nannoliths, and other mineralising nannoplankton such as silicoflagellates and calcispheres. The Association exists to facilitate pure and applied study of nannoplankton and this site is intended to assist in doing so.
