Abstract : Holographic techniques for the ecological study of marine plankton were examined. Holocamera design, laser illumination sources and recording emulsion requirements were investigated. Exploratory work on phototactic responses of marine organisms and holographic movies for the locomotion of copepods were performed. Image reduction techniques for the study of large volumes were investigated. A technique for recording large volume scenes was successfully demonstrated. (Author)
