LabSTAF is the first of a new generation of research-grade active fluorometers being developed by Chelsea Technologies Ltd (CTL) in collaboration with The University of Southampton (UoS), the National Oceanographic Centre (NOC) and The University of Essex (UoE) as part of the STAFES-APP project within the NERC-funded OCEANIDS programme (NE/P020844/1). The STAFES-APP acronym expands to Single Turnover Active Fluorometry of Enclosed Samples – for Autonomous Phytoplankton Productivity. The aim of the project is to develop highly sensitive benchtop and deployable systems that can be used to improve our understanding of the global carbon cycle and aquatic ecosystem function. Meaningful assessment of the global carbon cycle must incorporate Phytoplankton Primary Productivity (PhytoPP) which forms the base of the marine food chain and represents approximately half of the carbon fixed by photosynthesis on a planetary scale. It follows that measurement of PhytoPP on wide .....
