Paper Abstract

Seawaters detailed spectroscopic analyses were carried out in the ENEA mobile fluorosensor laboratory participating to the oceanographic campaign within the XIII Italian Antarctic Mission (R/V Italica, Nov. '97 - Jan '98). A complete set of in-vivo emission and excitation spectra was measured during cruises in the Ross Sea and along Southern Ocean transects up- to New Zealand. Measurements allowed for distinguishing among natural seawater components (tyrosine and tryptophan protein- like substances) and for identifying phytoplankton pigments (Chl-a, b, c, carotenoids, phycoerithrin, and phaeopigments). Georeferenced data have been collected at fixed time intervals and released on thematic maps.
