Entry ID: Algal_Toxicity_Project

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Experiments were carried out at Casey Station over the summer of 2005-2006 to investigate declines in chlorophyll fluorescence following from exposure to seawater spiked with heavy metals. Chlorophyll fluorescence was measured using a pulse amplitude modulated (PAM) fluorometer. The PAM device was mounted to a robotic arm, which could be programmed using a laptop computer to automatically position ... View entire text
