Abstract:

Our overall goal is to understand how photosynthetic and photoprotective pigments in benthic plants primarily benthic microalgae affect the optical properties primarily spectral reflectance and fluorescence of shallow benthic environments. The information gained will be used for the development and testing of rapid scanning optical techniques for detecting and assessing changes and specific disturbances in benthic communities.
