Abstract
Light absorption, chlorophyll-specific absorption and package effect of phytoplankton in Zhujiang River mouth was studied on the two cruises of "Shiyan 2". The vertical distribution of phytoplankton in waters can be simulated by Gaussian equation; light absorption of phytoplankton was made on 25 mm GF/F filter, maximum light absorption of phytoplankton was at the depth 5-10m underwater. The value of chlorophyll-specific absorption was negatively correlated with chlorophyll a concentration. Package effect index also had a negative relationship with chlorophyll concentration. These results indicated that the characteristics of light absorption by phytoplankton varied in different waters were properly related to the phytoplankton concentration.
