Paper Abstract

The ENEA mobile fluorosensor laboratory has participated to the XIII Italian Antarctic Mission operating in the oceanographic campaign (R/V Italica, Nov. '97 - Jan. '98). Sea water quality parameters (phytoplankton and yellow matter concentration, turbidity and biomass productivity) have been remotely and in situ monitored during the cruise in the Ross sea and along the Southern Ocean transects up-to New Zealand. Georeferenced data have been collected and released on thematic maps. Algal blooms and temporal variations of the monitored quantities have been reported. Chlorophyll-a fluorescence intensities have been compared with laboratory determinations, the absolute values of conversion factors in have been calculated for spectrofluometric and lidar data.
