Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO MEASURE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE IN THE OXYGENA BAND, WHERE ATMOSPHERIC OXYGEN SPECTRALLY EXCLUDES INCIDENT SUNLIGHT. A CELL CONTAINING LOW PRESSURE OXYGEN WILL BE USED AS A NARROW BAND FILTER TO ABSORB CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE PHOTONS AT THE A BAND LINE CENTERS, AND LATER RE-EMIT THEM FOR DETECTION.
