Computer programs for estimating in situ phytoplankton photosynthesis. The programs are written in Turbo Pascal and run on IBM compatible personal computers controlled by the MS-DOS operating system (in Windows 95, they run in an MS-DOS window). The theory of the programs is presented in detail along with instructions for use. Example data sets and resulting output are shown for each of the programs.

Six programs are described here:
