Parameters: Chlorophyll

Congratulations to Kenneth Hayes who was awarded a Travel Stipend for his presentation at the 2019 CERF Conference featuring our Trilogy Laboratory Fluorometer.

Abstract:  Blooms of the “brown tide” organism, Aureoumbra lagunensis, have occurred regularly since 1990 in Texas’ Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay, yet the source population for the blooms is unknown. Field sampling from 2013-2016 showed persistently high abundances in one tributary (Laguna Salada) of Baff...

Parameters: Chlorophyll, Algal Classification

Congratulations to Carolina Gutierrez who was awarded a Travel Stipend for his presentation at the ESA 2019 featuring our AquaFluor Handheld Fluorometer and PhytoFind in situ Algal Classification Instrument. 


Growing levels of human-induced changes on mountainous streams around the globe demand for an understanding of how species diversity and ecosystem function are affected by increasing water temperature and loss of riparian coverage along en...

Parameters: Chlorophyll

Congratulations to Alexa Sterling who was awarded a Travel Stipend for her presentation at the 2019 ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting featuring our Trilogy and 10AU Fluorometers.


Some strains of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia produce the neurotoxin domoic acid (DA) which can bioaccumulate in shellfish. Toxic shellfish consumption has deleterious impacts on higher trophic levels including mortality in marine animals and amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans. In 2016 and 201...

Parameters: Chlorophyll

Congratulations to Rebecca Eckert who was awarded a Travel Stipend for her poster presentation at the 2018 SFS Annual Meeting featuring our Trilogy Laboratory Fluorometer.

Food webs of temperate, forested headwater streams are energetically supported by leaf debris decomposed by microbes and macroinvertebrate shredders. Recent studies suggest algae may influence leaf decomposition and shredder growth. Thus, leaf-associated algae may correspond to macroinver...

Parameters: Chlorophyll, Phycocyanin

Myvatn, or “midge lake” in Icelandic, is a biological jewel located just south of the Arctic Circle. As the name suggested, it produces many midges: in years with high densities, the biomass of midges coming out of the lake is about equivalent to 100 humpback whales. But in some years, the midges almost disappear, with biomass equivalent to a few large dogs. These huge fluctuations in midge abundance drive almost all facets of the Myvatn ecosystem, including c...
