The absorption and scattering coefficients and reflectance spectra of ultra-high density Nannochloropsis occulata cultures were investigated in detail to identify the optical properties of the cultures and devise algorithms for remote estimation of dry cell mass in ultra-high cell density cultures. High-spectral resolution measurements of apparent absorption and attenuation as well as reflectance from 400 to 900 nm were carried out in relation to the dry weight, cell count, and pigment… CONTINUE READING
