The underway fluorescence data were logged every minute using Sharon Smiths Turner Designs fluorometer plumbed to the ships SAIL system. The data were manually calibrated to discreet surface chlorophyll measurements in segments determined by the times of fluorometer cleanings, as well as any changes in water mass that might have affected the calibration. Quality control consisted of range checks and removal of any readings which were obviously bubble-contaminated.
