Abstract : Primary objectives of the work at sea were the further testing and development of simple instrumentation for measuring the radiant energy available for photosynthesis and the collection of data to reveal any relationship between primary productivity and the radiant energy available for photosynthesis. A broad program including measurements of primary productivity, chlorophyll concentration, nutrient analysis, and light conditions was carried out. (Author)
