-As part of the North Atlantic Bloom Experiment (NABE), CTD/transmissometer profiles were made on two cruises at 47°N, 20°W in spring 1989 to quantify the increase in particles during a phytoplankton bloom in relationship to biophysical forcing factors. Water samples were filtered to obtain particle mass concentrations for calibration of beam attenuation (beam c) from the transmissometer. Shipboard experiments demonstrated that beam c resulted primarily from the concentration of small particles… CONTINUE READING
