Research project

Single Turnover Active Fluorometry of Encolsed Samples for Autonomous Phytoplankton Productivity (STAFES-APP)

Project overview

In collaboration with industry and academic partners we are developing a new generation of active chlorophyll fluorometers for the estimation of phytoplankton primary production on autonomous platforms.
