PHYTOOPTICS: Ocean optics to identify and measure marine phytoplankton and other water constituents

Analytical bio-optical techniques are applied to extract unique long-term information on phytoplankton and other water constituents with high temporal and spatial coverage which contribute significantly to a better understanding for the attribution of anthropogenic and natural sources of climate change to the marine ecosystem and biogeochemical cycles. Our outreach activities can be found here.
