Paper Abstract

The design and optical characteristics of a polychromatic ultraviolet radiation exposure system are described. The system uses a Xe lamp and long-pass cutoff filters to provide exposures to plankton suspensions in quartz cuvettes. Up to 80 simultaneous exposures can be made for eight spectral regimes with ten irradiance levels for each regime. Treatment spectra are presented for a system configured for the study of UV responses of biological and chemical processes in the Chesapeake Bay. Experimental exposures bracket full solar spectral irradiance for the site.
