Primary production of the open ocean plays a key role in the global carbon cycle, and spatial and temporal scaling problems in the marine ecosystem present severe challenges to its quantification. This chapter describes a suite of experimental approaches to marine production measurement including in situ and laboratory 14C and 18O methods. Indirect, non-invasive methods utilizing passive and active fluorescence and remote sensing techniques coupled to mathematical models are also examined. A summary of recommended methods is provided including scale considerations.

Keywords:   chambers, fluorescence, 18O, ocean, scaling, models, remote sensing, 14C
