Various methods of presenting and mathematically describing particle
size distribution are explained and evaluated. The hyperbolic
distribution is found to be the most practical but the more complex
characteristic vector analysis is the most sensitive to changes in
the shape of the particle size distributions.
Particle size distribution, nutrient concentrations,...

The symbiosis between cnidarians, such as corals and sea anemones, and photosynthetic dinoflagellates belonging to the genus Symbiodinium spp. is one of the most productive in the marine environment. This mutualistic endosymbiosis allow reef-building corals to lay down the foundation of coral reef ecosystems, which supports a highly biodiverse community...

Optical oceanography models of attenuation and scattering properties often contain simple spectral relationships. Electromagnetic theory, however, predicts fluctuations in the spectra of the attenuation coefficients and scattering properties of substances at wavelengths near an absorption peak. We have modeled these effects for phytoplankton using homogeneous, two‐layered, and three‐layered sphere models...
Theoretical scattering computations are performed on a phytoplankton model consisting of three
concentric spheres. The outer sphere represents the wall, membrane, or frustule and is assigned a
relatively high index of refraction with no absorption. The middle layer represents the chloroplasts
and is assigned a relatively low index of refraction...
