To assess the short- and long-term impacts of Ultraviolet radiation (UVR, 280–400 nm) on the red tide alga Chaetoceros curvisetus, we exposed cells to three different solar radiation treatments–PAB:280–700 nm, PA:320–700 nm, and P:400–700 nm under 20°C incubated temperature. Short-term exposures were investigated: the photochemical efficiency (ΦPSII) versus irradiance curves under six levels of solar radiation by covering the incubators with a variable number of neutral density screens (the… CONTINUE READING
