    The vertical trajectory of phytoplankton in the Antarctic ocean is modelled as a random walk with a diffusivity derived from a simple Ekman layer model and turbulence theory. The surface mixing layer is shallow, but diffusion is large enough to effect the vertical distribution of phytoplankton in the upper ocean.
