During this Performance Demonstration t he WET Labs Cycle-P was successfully tested in a fixed, surface mooring deployment at three test sites including freshwater, brackish water, and saltwater coastal environments. With the exception of an initial instrument exchange on day 2 of the first field test, the test instrument functioned continuously for all 4 weeks of each test. Data recovery was 84, 79, and 99% of the total potential for MD, MI, and AK test sites respectively. Several logistical problems prevented complete execution of all of the quality control testing, but based on the completed blank and standard test exposures the instrument appeared capable of accurately measuring a wide range of phosphate concentrations and functioning consistently over a four week interval. There was no apparent degradation of the on-board reagents or stan dards over the deployment period. Extremely low phosphate concentrations at the MD test site did not allow for meaningful.....
