A Fluorometer is a device used to measure patterns of fluorescence. The 2-Wavelength Fluorometer (FLORD & FLNTU) specifically examines chlorophyll-a fluorescence and optical backscatter (red wavelengths). The 3-Wavelength Fluorometer (FLORT) specifically examines chlorophyll-a fluorescence, optical backscatter (red wavelengths), and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM). The CDOM Fluorometer (FLCDR) specifically measures CDOM in the seawater.
This instrument measures the following data products. Select a data product's name to learn more.
- Fluorometric CDOM Concentration (CDOMFLO) DPS
- Fluorometric Chlorophyll-a Concentration (CHLAFLO) DPS
- Optical Backscatter (Red Wavelengths) (FLUBSCT) DPS
The algorithm code used to generate this instrument's data products is also available in the ion-functions GitHub repository.
