Chelsea Instruments Ltd will be demonstrating the FASTtracka II Fluorimeter during the Primary Production of Planet Earth meeting in Plymouth, UK (6-11 September 99).
FASTtracka II is a new generation of oceanographic instrument, which measures the photosynthetic reaction of chlorophyll in the ocean. This is of particular interest to the environmental and scientific communities, since it gives a unique insight into primary production and thus the overall health of the ocean ecosystem. This is directly related to the uptake and release of carbon dioxide in the surface waters of the oceans and is fundamentally linked to current studies of the Greenhouse Effect.
FASTtrackas are now in regular use by the leading oceanographic institutes in Europe, USA, Australasia and the Far East.
