Paper Abstract

Two standard laboratory fluorometers, the Turner Model III and the Turner Designs Model 10, have been modified for in situ measurement of chlorophyll-a fluorescence in phytoplankton to depths of 100m through an optical remote sensing head, a fibre optic cable assembly, and an external tungsten halogen source. Sensitivities of 0.1 mg/m3 of chlorophyll-a have been achieved which is adequate for most oceanographic work.
