Since the advent of the photomultiplier tube with greatly increased sensitivity to low light intensity, it has been possible to measure marine luminescence quanti tatively. Luminescent flashes have been found to be far more prevalent at all depths in the sea than had generally been suspected (Clarke and Backus, 1956 ; Clarke and Breslau, 1959, 1960 ; Clarke and Hubbard, 1959 ; Clarke and Wertheim, 1956; Boden and Kampa, 1957, 1958 ; Kampa and Boden, 1957) . Attempts to identify the source of… CONTINUE READING
