The project in a nutshell
STAFES-APP stands for single-turnover active fluorescence of enclosed samples for aquatic primary productivity. The aim of the project is the development of next generation active fluorometers which can be deployed autonomously (e.g. from moorings, ROVs, etc.) and generate high resolution data of phytoplankton optical properties and photosynthetic rates. LéXPLORE provides the ideal platform for field trails of prototype autonomous instruments which require minimal maintenance while providing data of interest to multiple other projects.
