Spectrally weighted transparency in models of water-column photosynthesis and photoinhibition by ultraviolet radiation
We present a simple method for describing the influence of variable attenuation of spectral irradiance, Kd(lambda), on water-column photosynthesis and its inhibition by ultraviolet radiation (UV). The approach is based on ...
Optical detection and assessment of algal blooms
Concerns about harmful algal blooms (HABs) have grown in recent years. There is a pressing need for robust, quantitative, and cost-effective methods to detect and characterize algal blooms. Critical applications of these ...
Modeling the effects of ultraviolet radiation on embryos of Calanus finmarchicus and Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in a mixing environment
It is well established that ultraviolet radiation (UVR, 280-400 nm) harms aquatic organisms. Reductions in productivity have been reported for phytoplankton, ichthyoplankton, and zooplankton in incubations exposed to UVR. ...
