Chelsea’s leading primary productivity instruments measure key biological parameters in situ across the diverse and dynamic ocean environment, from coastal waters to oligotrophic zones. From the Poles to the Tropics, Chelsea’s ocean science instrumentation provides sensitive and accurate primary productivity and algae data that few other companies can match.
Harmful algal blooms
Measuring phytoplankton productivity and algal community structure, along with the timely detection of harmful algal blooms, are key to understanding the marine biological environment and making informed decisions to protect aquaculture sites and bathing waters.
Critical to understanding climate change, phytoplankton form the base of the food chain and are responsible for nearly half of all photosynthesis on the planet.
