Paper Abstract

The Naval Ocean Systems Center And The Naval Oceanographic Office Have Been Making Measurements Of Bioluminescence In Conjunction With Other Oceanographic Parameters In Surface Waters (Upper 200 Meters) And To Depths Of 3650 Meters Using Submersible Vehicles. Biological Samples And Laboratory Measurements Of Individual Organisms' Flash Signatures Are Also Obtained. Pumped/ Closed (Closed In This Text Signifies Light Baffeled) Detectors Are Routinely Used For Surface And Depth Measurements Of Bioluminescence. An Open (Open Signifies Viewing Directly Out Into The Seawater) System Is Used In Conjunction With A Pumped Detector For Deep Dives. A Brief Overview Of The Instrumentation, Some Examples Of Data Obtained, And Conclusions Based On Measurements Are Presented.
