Spectral ultraviolet (UV) irradiance, water column attenuation and biological weighting functions for inhibition of phytoplankton photosynthesis have been measured for the Rhode River, a subestuary of the Chesapeake Bay. Together, these measurements can be used to estimate UV effects on water column production, but each factor shows a significant range of variability even just considering summer time conditions. A sensitivity analysis of UV inhibition is described which assesses the effect of… CONTINUE READING
