Technical discussion I - Underwater light measurement and light absorption by algae

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper concepts and nomenclature of light measurements are discussed. The particular problems of underwater light measurements and the calibration of the equipment were presented. The pros and cons with spectroradiometers and broad band sensors were discussed. The use of specific ultraviolet-B sources for algal photobiology is recommended.
