Nutrient‐ and light‐limited growth of Thalassiosira fluviatilis in continuous culture, with implications for phytoplankton growth in the ocean
The marine diatom Thalassiosira jluvintilis was grown in a continuous culture system at 20°C on a 12:12 L:D cycle over a series of nutrient- and light-limited dilution rates. Bannister’s theoreticalExpand

Production equations in terms of chlorophyll concentration, quantum yield, and upper limit to production
For eventual incorporation into a general theory of phytoplankton dynamics, an equation for gross daily production in a water column is needed which is an explicit function of phytoplanktonExpand

A general theory of steady state phytoplankton growth in a nutrient saturated mixed layer
An improved theory relating steady-state phytoplankton density, primary production, and growth rate to environmental variables and to phytoplankton parameters is presented and developed in detail forExpand

Quantitative description of steady state, nutrient‐saturated algal growth, including adaptation
Steady state, nutrient-saturated phytoplankton growth can be quantitatively described by four equations: an empirical equation relating growth rate ~1, to absorbed irradiance [; a different equationExpand

Absorption and scattering coefficients in Irondequoit Bay1
Profiles of scalar, downwelling, upwelling, and spectral irradiance were measured on 37 dates in 1982-1983. Values of the attenuation coefficient K were 0.8-1.2 m-l, and the reflectance R wasExpand

Model of the mean cosine of underwater radiance and estimation of underwater scalar irradiance
An empirical model has been found with which to calculate depth profiles of the mean cosine of a component of radiance in homogeneous water under a flat surface. Model inputs are the refraction angleExpand

Parallel time courses of oxygen evolution and chlorophyll fluorescence.
Abstract In strong light, after several minutes darkness, fluorescence induction curves for green algae exhibit the following features: a low initial level O, a first peak P1 at about 15 msec, aExpand
