Abstract : This report presents data from the expedition Varifront III, which measured stimulated planktonic bioluminescence and related physical, chemical, and biological parameters. Satellite imagery of sea surface temperature and chlorophyll was also collected. The study established a data base to develop correlates for a productive model of the distribution and intensity of planktonic bioluminescence in surface and near-surface ocean waters.
