Fluorometer

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.
