Abstract:

Flow injection analysis FIA is a technique for automating chemical analyses. The principles of FIA are reviewed here. Methods for applying FIA to the analyses of nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate, and total amino acids in seawater are examined. Analyses of other nutrients, metals, and carbonate system components are also discussed. Various techniques to eliminate the refractive index effect are reviewed. Finally, several examples of the application of FIA to oceanographic problems are presented.
