Paper Abstract

The researches of bioluminescence and fluorescence fields were executed in surface waters of Pacific Ocean. Temperature of water was simultaneously registered. Under rise of the temperature bioluminescence increased in 85% cases, and fluorescence decreased. The fluorescence increased if the temperature decreased. It is significant that the change of luminscence either preceded the temperature front or it followed for him. The scales of heterogeneities of phytoplankton fluorescence were 30-60 km and the exceeding of average value of fluorescence peaks on background was approximately 35%. The heterogeneities of bioluminescence field achieved 100 km and exceeded the background in the ten and more times.
