Paper Abstract

The Laser TrollerTm discussed in an earlierpaper1 has been used to measure the light scattering characteristics of individual phytoplankton from a variety of species in a controlled tank environment. The data collected confirmed the ability of the instrument to characterize marine hydrosols. A detailed discussion and statistical analysis of the results have been described elsewhere . A second set of data are currently being reduced. An overview of the direction and goals of the characterization analysis is presented and illustrated by the discussion of typical sample data. Recent improvements to the instrument's structure which will enable it to withstand open ocean conditions are described. Features of the enhanced data collection software are also discussed.
