Abstract : The objective of this research as to develop an automated system to monitor microplankton respiration via analysis of ETS activity. This system would facilitate the processing of the large number of seawater samples that are characteristically taken on ocean survey cruises. Furthermore, it would permit the construction of maps of plankton metabolism. (Author)
