Vertical Migration of the Toxic Dinoflagellate Karenia Brevis and the Impact on Ocean Optical Properties

  title={Vertical Migration of the Toxic Dinoflagellate Karenia Brevis and the Impact on Ocean Optical Properties},
  author={Oscar Schofield and John Kerfoot and Kevin Mahoney and Mark Moline and Steven E Lohrenz},
Vertical migration behavior is found in many harmful algal blooms; however, the corresponding impact on ocean optical properties has not been quantified. A near-monospecific population of the dinoflagellate Karenia brevis was encountered off the west coast of Florida. The community was tracked for 24 hours by following a Lagrangian drifter deployed at the beginning of the experiment. A suite of inherent optical and cellular measurements was made. Over the 24 hour period, the K. brevis… CONTINUE READING
