Paper Abstract

A three color laser fluororneter has been developed for field work operations. Using two tunable dye lasers (excitation wavelengths at 440 m and 530 an), broadband wavelength optical filters were selected to obtain maximum fluorescence sensitivity at wavelengths >675 an (chlorophyll) and 575 an (+15 an (phycoerythrin)). The laser fluorometer permits the measurement of phytoplankton pigments under static or flawing conditions and more closely resembles the time scales (ns) and energy levels (mW) of other laser-induced fluorescence instruments.
