Description 
Summary

Biophysical monitoring in Sevastopol Bay is performed by Biophysical department of IBSS. The aim of this monitoring is to investigate the bioluminescence field in the Sevastopol bay and its correlation with biological and hydrophysical parameters. The monitoring is performed with the hydrobiophysical instrument complex Salpa-M, which was developed in IBSS together with Hydrooptic-Ltd and Akvastandart-Yug. This complex includes channels to measure bioluminescence, temperature, salinity, turbidity, fluorescence, chlorophyll a, PAR). Phytoplankton data include taxonomical information, each cell size, abundance, biomass, cell volume and surface area. Zooplankton data include taxonomical information, abundance, biomass. Also for the zooplankton samples underway Melnikov-Temnykh plankton sampler is used.
