Abstract
Understanding variability in the chlorophyll-specific absorption of marine phytoplankton, <i>a<sub>ph</sub><sup>*</sup><sub>Chl</sub> (&lambda;)</i>, is essential for primary production modelling, calculation of underwater light field characteristics, and development of algorithms for remote sensing of chlorophyll concentrations. Previous field and laboratory studies have demonstrated significant apparent variability in <i>a<sub>ph</sub><sup>*</sup><sub>Chl</sub> (&lambda;)</i> for natural samples and algal cultures. However, the potential impact of measurement uncertainties on derived values of <i>a<sub>ph</sub><sup>*</sup><sub>Chl</sub> (&lambda;)</i> has rece...
