Abstract

Sections of variable fluorescence across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans reveal the influence of geophysical processes in controlling the quantum yields of phytoplankton photosynthesis. Unlike any other photosynthetic parameter, it is shown that chlorophyll fluorescence can be used to bridge the scales of biophysical responses to ecosystem dynamics. Developments in analytical techniques are discussed. -from Authors
