Paper Abstract

The aim of this study is to find the algorithms for estimating the biomass of the Emiliania huxleyi from the irradiance data of the sea water surface. For this purpose, the relationships between the biomass of the Emiliania huxleyi in an axenic tank culture and the water irradiance data measured by a spectroradiameter were found. During the growing phase and stationary phase of the Emiliania huxleyi, the total attenuation, absorption and back scattering coefficients of the water in the tank were calculated from the irradiance data. The ratio of the water irradiance data at 670nm and 814nm were well correlated with the total cell concentration of the Emiliania huxleyi. It is expected to help for the biomass estimation of natural blooms in the ocean.
