In-vivo absorption properties of algal pigments
Estimates of the in vivo specific absorption coefficients (m2 mg'; 400-750 nm, 2 nm intervals) for the major algal pigment groups (chlorophylls, carotenoids and phycobilins) are presented.Expand
Evidence for a simple relationship between natural fluorescence, photosynthesis and chlorophyll in the sea
It is suggested that natural fluorescence measurements, either as a supplement to direct measurements or as independent optical measurements, provide a new and rapid means of estimating gross photosynthesis in the sea. Expand
Re-evaluation of the extent of Caulerpa taxifolia development in the northern Mediterranean using airborne spectrographic sensing
There has been significant concern over development of the tropical green alga Caulerpa taxifolia in the Mediterranean Sea. Reports dating back to 1991 predicted that the species would expandExpand
The Penetration of UV into Natural Waters
The high latitude southern hemisphere is a special case where ground-level UVR levels have increased over the past one to two decades in response to the springtime antarctic ozone loss. Enhanced UVExpand
A two-component description of spectral absorption by marine particles
Values for the spectral absorption coefficient of particles sampled in the Sargasso Sea (34”N, 7O”W) in 1987 were subjected to a multiple regression analysis to assess contributions to lightExpand
Advances in Measuring the Apparent Optical Properties (AOPs) of Optically Complex Waters
This report documents new technology used to measure the apparent optical properties (AOPs) of optically complex waters. The principal objective is to be prepared for the launch of next-generationExpand

The War in the Air
Apparent optical properties of the Canadian Beaufort Sea – Part 2: The 1% and 1 cm perspective in deriving and validating AOP data products
A next-generation in-water profiler designed to measure the apparent optical properties (AOPs) of seawater was developed and validated across a wide dynamic range of in-water properties. The newExpand
