Abstract : The primary objective of this research program was to (1) survey the spatial distribution of phytoplankton biomass in the coastal regions of the western Arabian Sea in summer, 1995, (2) deploy surface drifters instrumented with fluorometers to describe surface pigment distribution in relation to summer monsoon forcings, and (3) develop a subsurface float to profile pigment fluorescence over the upper 200 meters of the ocean.
