Abstract:

THE FIELD OF MARINE PHOTOCHEMISTRY IS A SPECIAL FOCUS AREA FOR ONR, AND THE LEADING RESEARCHERS IN THIS FIELD HAVE VOICED A STRONG NEED FOR INSTRUMENTATION TO MEASURE THE ATTENUATION OF ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT IN THE OCEAN. BIOSPHERICAL INSTRUMENTS IS THE LEADING DEVELOPER OF NEW TYPES OF OPTICAL OCEANOGRAPHIC SENSORS, AND IS UNIQUELY SUITED TO DEVELOP SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTATION IN THIS AREA OF OCEANOGRAPHY. THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF THIS INSTRUMENTATION. THE DESIGN WILL BE CHARACTERIZED BY COMPUTER MODELING, AND BOTH LABORATORY AND FIELD TESTS. THE ANTICIPATED INSTRUMENTS WILL BE WELL SUITED TO VERTICAL PROFILING, ENCORPORATING A WIDE RANGE DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM UNDER MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL. THE SYSTEM WILL BE RUGGED, BATTERY POWERED, AND SUITED TO OPERATION FROM OCEANOGRAPHIC SHIPS AND SMALL BOATS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO BE LOWERED THROUGH HOLES IN THE ICE CAP AS WELL.
