Aims
  • To improve the understanding of plankton diversity, spatial and temporal distribution and the
    development of algal blooms in the sea. Harmful algae will be in focus.
  • To exchange experiences of using devices aimed at automated observations of
    phytoplankton including harmful algae. Instruments include multispectral fluorometers, flow
    cytometers and in situ video systems.
  • To compare the performance of different instruments. Note: a proper scientific inter-
    comparison of instruments with replicated samples etc. is not the aim of the workshop.
  • To promote cooperation and to plan future work in WP3.1 and 4.1.
