Measurements of underwater spectral irradiance have been used to investigate the behavior of the ratio of total quanta to total energy (Q : W) within the spectral region of photosynthetic activity. In data from a wide range of optical water types, the Q : W ratio varies by no more than &lo% and is 2.5 4 0.25 x 10” (quanta set-l watt-l). Within this range Q : W varies systematically and thus it may be predicted within 45%, if either the wavelength of maximum spectral irradiance or the… CONTINUE READING
