Photosynthetic characteristics and estimated growth rates indicate grazing is the proximate control of primary production in the Equatorial Pacific
Macronutrients persist in the surface layer of the equatorial Pacific Ocean because the production of phytoplankton is limited. Measurements of photosynthesis as a function of irradiance (P-I) provide information on the ...
Relationships between vertical mixing and photoadaptation of phytoplankton: Similarity criteria
In their natural environment phytoplankton are exposed to fluctuations in incident irradiance due to vertical displacements in the water column induced by turbulent fluid motion. A reaction-diffusion model is analyzed to ...
Inferred influence of nutrient availability on the relationship between Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and incident irradiance in the Bering Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2000 Florida Ave., N.W. Washington DC 20009 USA, [mailto:email@example.com], [URL:http://www.agu.org], 2008-08)
This study examines variability in the relationship between Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and incident solar irradiance as a potential diagnostic of the nutritional status of phytoplankton. The study site is the ...
Biological processes and optical measurements near the sea surface: Some issues relevant to remote sensing
There is good evidence that bio-optical relationships are altered near the surface: (1) the fluorescence yield from chlorophyll declines, leading to bias in the estimation of pigment from fluorometry; (2) the modeled ...
