Carotenoids comprise one of the most widespread classes of pigments found in nature. Polyene pigments from the dinoflagellate Gonyaulax polyedra were extracted every hour over a 24 hour period and the levels of beta-carotene during the day-phase were found to be twice as high as during the night-phase period. Using the thermal decomposition of(More)
Advanced field methods of carbon (C) analysis should now be capable of providing repetitive, sequential measurements for the evaluation of spatial and temporal variation at a scale that was previously unfeasible. Some spectroscopy techniques, such as laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), have portable features that may potentially lead to clean and(More)
