Measurements of methyl chloride in the Northwest Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 1994-04)
Methyl chloride was measured directly in seawater using a purge and trap system and gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The results indicate that surface waters of the northwest Atlantic are a source of ...
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 ...
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 ...
