Simultaneously with the biological collections, temperature, salinity, pH, water transparency, and current speed data were obtained. The(More)
The possibility of using an image orthicon tube (IO) for detecting low intensity light pulses where spatial resolution, high sensitivity, and high content of information are concerned is examined. A formulation of the signal-to-noise ratio is given in terms of the number of resolvable image points and the working parameters of the tube. An equivalence(More)
