11) Analysis method :Non-acidification method (Welschmeyer, 1994), Acidification method (Holm-Hansen et al., 1965)(for Total chl.) Non-acidification method (Welschmeyer, 1994)(for Size fractionated)
12) Lamp :Non-acidification method (Blue Mercury Vapor),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.
