Chlorophyll data during MR08-05 cruise were obtained by the following methods. Water sampling, filtration, and devices and standard materials for analysis for this method are outlined below. For further information, please see Cruise Report.
1)  Vertical sampling :                 Niskin
2)  Surface sampling :                  Bucket
3)  Sampling layer :                    8-9
4)  Size fractionated :                 None(Total chl.) or 3
5)  Filter and filtration :             Whatman GF/F 25mm (for Total chl.)
                                        nuclepore filter 47mm (pore size;10.0µm,3.0µm,1.0µm)
                                        and Whatman GF/F25mm (for Size fractionated)
6)  Extract reagent :                   N,N-dimethylformamide (HPLC-grade)
7)  Extract time :                      more than 24 hours at -20degC
8)  Preservation period of frozen filter paper :  a few days
9)  Analysis place :                    MIRAI
10) Analysis device :                   Fluorometer 
11) Analysis method :                   Non-acidification method (Welschmeyer, 1994) and Acidification method (Holm-Hansen et al., 1965)
12) Lamp :                              Non-acidification method (Blue Mercury Vapor) and  Acidification method (Daylight White)
Fluorometer (Tuner Design fluorometer (10-AU-005)) measures fluorescence of chlorophyll in a sample material extracted in organic solvent from phytoplankton, which consists of lamp, filter, fluorescence detector and keypad. Since each fluorescent material emits the specific wavelength of fluorescent activated by absorbing intrinsic wavelength of light, fluorescence of the sample material can be gained if only the spectrum of the fluorescent intensity are measured by using optical filter. Intensity of emission light is almost in proportion to density of chlorophyll when intensity of excitation light is constant. However, since absolute value of chlorophyll density cannot be read from fluorescence value, it is necessary to calibrate it by using reference material.
