Paper Abstract

By linking a battery operated logger unit and power supply with a submersible fluorometer we have been able to make continuous untended measurements ofphytoplankton chlorophyll fluorescence, and hence estimate algal biomass for periods of up to 35 days at moorings. Calibration aixi data processing procedures are described, and some examples of the results of deployments in waters around the United Kingdom are presented.
