Abstract: Photosynthetically Available Radiation (PAR) observations were
made in the water column and on deck using Biospherical Instruments
Inc. PUV-500 and PUV-510 (cosine, 400-700nm) units. The observations
were made over a six month period (January-June 1995) from five
cruises of the R/V Endeavor to the Georges Bank region.
