Use of a BOD oxygen probe for estimating primary productivity


Czaplewski, Raymond L.; Parker, Michael. 1973. Use of a BOD oxygen probe for estimating primary productivity. Limnology and Oceanography. 18(1): 152-154.

The accuracy of a BOD oxygen probe for field measurements of primary production by the light and dark bottle oxygen technique is analyzed. A figure is presented with which to estimate the number of replicate bottles needed to obtain a given accuracy in estimating photosynthetic rates.

Keywords: BOD oxygen probe, photosynthetic rates
