Abstract:

Our research is directed toward utilization of modern optoelectronic technology for real-time monitoring of the ocean s chemical environment with a subtlety and sophistication equivalent to senses of taste and smell. We strive to construct a compact instrument capable of measuring many chemical species concurrently via fluorescence and absorption spectroscopy.
